Refrigeration Conversion

If I remember the story a guy put the cooling part of the refrigerator on the keel or on both sides of it. the lines ran back into the boat and to a standard refrigeration compressor and then into his ice box he said it worked great and was cheep. I would be a little nervous about anything through my hull but if you used mill spec copper with a thick wall I guess it would last a long time as long as the electrolisis did not get it.
