Re: Water Cooled Air Conditioners For Sailboats?

Boat AC seems to use such crappy tech. Its the same old compressor/condensor as land based systems when boats have access to the worlds biggest heat sink. You'd think somebody would make an absorption/type of AC using the ocean as the heat sink
There are actually zeolite based AC systems for buildings where heat is used to remove the water from the zeolite. Normally, boats have access to almost unlimited sunlight too for heating it. Somebody needs to combine these into a good small marine AC.
