Fridgoboat Keelcooler

Has anyone installed these newer refer. units yet? Any feedback that you could provide would be great. I am considering this unit over the A/B. The one thing that may concern me would be the potential for fouling of the cooling plate, limiting the efficiency.

Thought I'd bring this back up to the top to see if anyone knows about this system. Thanks, Tom

Frigoboat systems were discussed a bit over on the SSCA Forum. They were recommended by a few. A competitor's website did their own tests on keel coolers and found that they don't work well when the water isn't moving past them (their claim, not mine).
