Re: Water Cooled Air Conditioners For Sailboats?

Shallow water temps easily get up into the 70s in Southern New England, which would do nearly nothing if just run through coils to heat exchange with the air. However, Armchair lists their location as Cal, which may be California? I believe water temps are cooler there, although, maybe not in shallow water.

Still, I would sooner install a bunch of 12v fans around the boat than spend the money on raw water to air heat exchanger.
