Kennya, you keep dropping one of the zeros in your post. The Coleman Seamach is a 13,500 BTU unit and the window shaker you have now is a 5,000 BTU unit. According to the website you provided the SeaMach is made for the harsh marine environment and would certainly be large enough to cool your boat. Everyone uses a generator to cool their boat when away from the dock, so power is not an issue. The only problem in the above post that I think you will have is changing the centre of gravity and therefore your righting moment by mounting a 100LB unit on deck. It also will have to be well secured to accept the pounding it will take.
