Unless the boat is really large, it is very unlikely that it will be able to support the electrical load required by the AC unit in question. Water cooled units are only more efficient in areas where the water is cold enough to cool the unit.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
