2005 Hunter 27 cooler?
I have had a look at the new 27 ft hunter an was surprised to see the cooler was a thermo electric unit. Any one out there have a hunter with this on board I would like to ask about how well it works in 80 to 90 degree heat. I thought they could only draw the inside temp down 40 degrees? I don''t know if I would want to eat food stored at that temp after a long sail to a pristine gunkhole?Have they made them better or what?

I have a 2013 Marlow Hunter 27 in Daytona Beach, FL. It is exposed to temperatures over 95 degrees on a regular basis. It always stays at around 37 degrees. It once went down to 35 degrees and I have had it there for a year and a half. The unit does look different from the photos of the older ones though.

Ken, I see it as a plus. This explains how it works. I do not think you will have problems unless you switch it it to heat the box, which so can do.

Like any unit. you need to precool the box. putting food in a warm box is always a mistake, even with ice.
