Portable Air Conditioners

I recently found a new type of a/c unit that might meet your needs... a stand-alone unit designed for room air conditioning, but a lot more flexible than the standard room a/c units... and more powerful than the 7000 btu Cruisairs.... copy this link to your browser....

you need to have a place to vent the hot air... in my Catalina 34, I had a solar vent in the aft cabin that worked perfectly. and you need to route the condensate to the bilge or a holding tank (pail) .... but it does keep the cabin liveable for less than 500 bucks... vs 2 grand ++ for a real marine a/c system... draws less than 8 amps, and is pretty quiet too
