Thanks for the info; we've considered the same location for our compressor as well as that's where our friend has it installed in his boat, which is not a PSC. My concern with the install in the locker is, as you mentioned, water. Putting it close to the icebox, which puts it forward instead of aft, will still have the same issue.

One thought I've been tossing about is to install it in that locker, but vent it into the engine compartment. Not sure if that will work or not; we're to take possession of it this Sunday.
