A refrig. is a necessity if you demand that 'lifestyle'. On passage, a place where there is usually a wind blowing, I use a windgen to supply my electrical demands vs. a 12vdc modern, high efficiency refrig. (a Seafrost XP specifically). With minimum power generation there is no need to be without a refrig. ... and one can keep ice cream 'hard' if you 'want to', and your fish catch and vegetables last as well as on land, etc. There is no need to eat like a recluse hermit living in the netherworld since the advent of modern high efficiency and quite reliable Danfoss, etc. type 12vdc compressor based refrig. systems. Of course the 'heart' of any such system is a WELL insulated 'box'.
