A/C takes a LOT of electricity! Unless you have a large catamaran completely covered in solar panels, or a dozen or so windmills, you are not going to come even CLOSE to generating enough electricity on your own.

Anyway, sounds like the consensus is that when we move to Florida we are definitely going to want A/C in our boat!
