Steve, the key to using the existing 110 volt system holding plate coil for a small 12 volt system will again be the tubing size inside the plate and not the compressor tubing size.
If the plate tubing is too large a separate evaporator will be required.
Alternative energy from wind or sun is a good idea for boats with Swing or Danfoss compressor refrigeration. My rule is, fifty watts of power per cubic foot of box, per day when sizing solar panels.
