Har, My wife and I lived aboard our 1973 33' Morgan OI from 1973 to 1985 and on our 41' OI since that time. I agree with most all above, but I am compelled to share a few specific cautions. I would do better knowing the year of production for your boat, but I suspect that any icebox conversion to refrigeration would be best with a great increase in insulation. I believe your best choice would be one of the 12V DC air heat exchanged units with a Danfloss compressor, but the Morgan iceboxes were not well insulated,- do the insullation! Before I continue, send me a PM with the year of your Morgan, rudder delamination, mast step corrosion, balsa deck water intrusion, port leaks, chain plate maintenace and more have some specific characteristics on the Morgan OI's. I would also suggest a design of a bimini top that incorporates the designed cockpit coaming without the added dodger. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
