We have no builtin a/c, and have been comfortable up into August in Miami. We cruised for a couple of years with no a/c, and one hurricane season in Daytona with no a/c.

We came to Green Cove Springs, and the first day someone asked if I had a/c. I answered no, and he suggested I get it. The sun starting going down, and the temp was pleasant, but the mosquitoes forced us to close the boat up. We bvorrowed a car the next day. Went to Home Depot bought a 5k unit, and a sheet of insulation board with the aluminum foiln on it. A roll of the foil tape, and for $100 we had a cool enviroment with no creatures while at the dock.

The following year we added another unit, and now we close off the forward, and rear berth in the strbrd hull, and the rest of the boat is very cool.
What I did on my mono was add a stern shower to give myself a small spray once in awhile to keep cool at times in Mexico........i2f
