I guess it depends on where south is and what time of year. In the trades, AC is not necessary when at anchor. At the dock - yes. Personally, I would want to be out of there by July if living aboard. Summer, north of the Chesepeake Bay.
The Bahamas in winter, it should not be necessary. Now if your talking Florida, Bahamas in summer that is a whole different story. If you go to the Northeast US coast, you can probably get by without it at the dock on all but the hottest of days. At anchor, you should be ok for even more days.
I have AC/Heat and the only way I can run it is plugged in at the dock or running my generator.
