I have one - runs in my companion way hatch or a forward hatch that is angled at 45 degrees. Runs on my Ryobi genset also.

Don't know about dock mates loving me as I dock at home. Raft up buddies seem to appreciate me having an air conditioner when they come visit all day long.

Re: Window AC Unit

Well, it's kind of like a loud late party. As long as you are at the party it's all good. If you're a neighbor who wasn't invited to the party you're thinking about calling the cops.

If the op has neighbors to consider he might think about one of the inside units. They cost about double but you won't have to be climbing over the thing when you come or go.

Re: Window AC Unit

only air conditioners i can hear from dock are some of the older megas... these lg units are quiet -- so are most marine air conditioners, except that one folks used to place in overhead hatch--that was noisey.

Re: Window AC Unit

Guys....and gals.... I evolved from a "rooftop RV" type that sat on the main saloon hatch to a "mounted in the companionway" room AC unit (pulled a hamstring every time I had to crawl over it), to the sit-on-the-floor Soleus unit from Home-Depot (which nearly ruined my teak and holly sole when the drain hose came off) to my most recent species of Mermaid Air 12,000 btu marine ac unit mounted in the port lazarette (installed by yours truly for about $1500). I wish I had just bought the Mermaid Air unit a long, long time ago.

Are you saying the window units are loud? They are a lot less annoying than the built in AC. i cannot hear my neighbors window unit most of the time, but my other neighbors built in drive me crazy. Like having a waterfall next door. Makes me have to pee all night long.

Do you neighbor a favor and get a window unit!

Re: Window AC Unit

Well, the window unit that I walk past on the way to my boat is probably the loudest thing on our dock in the evening. We're in a pretty quiet marina.

I know what you mean about the built ins.
