"however, they will pay to relocate it but not to reimburst me if I sold at a loss. " Understandable. What if you approached someone and said "look, shipping a boat is a major project. I'd rather sell this one here and buy another one there and not worry about what can happen on truck and not have to take two days off, one to supervise the loading and another to supervise the unloading, both of weekdays with short notice. Would you just consider paying me an extra $3000 "relocation fee" so I can do that?"

They might see the logic, if there's no corporate policy tying hands.

Hell of a thought....I sent an e-mail to my corporate office today. Waiting on a response. I doubt it will work, but ingenius none the less.
As far as the AC unit guys really think I'll need it? It gets over 100 degrees here in Chicago and its pretty bearable on the lake. Also, what would be the cheapest route to go? I saw one that fits over the hatch but have serious doubts as to how much air that can push.

Culinary...Oh MAN will you need one!!
Since the boat will be out of the water, that is the best time to get it done..before you drop her back in unless you can "T" off another through hull line and plumb into an "overboard" line. If you are reasonably can do the job yourself as the units are self contained and all that is really required is:
1. Wire in the unit.
2. Wire in the saltwater pump
3. run the hoses to the through hulls (with a strainer that is easily accessible on the seawater intake. )
I would guess that something in the 8-10K BTU range will be what you need. You have to remember that it is not only the air temperature in FL but also the humidity and intensity of the sun on your deck that makes it unbearable for many months of the year. You will be at a dock so can't count on hatches and breezes providing much ventilation.
I've had pretty good luck over the years with these guys if you're looking for a recommendation:

Nick, the larger boats with permanently installed AC down there use water-cooled units, but just playing salt water over a conventional AC coil would eat it up in short order.

Rigging awnings--even a simple tarp--across the boat will help tremendously. As will placing an ordinary 12" fan wherever the AC unit is blowing, to distribute the cold air in the boat.

This will give you a good excuse to meet your new neighbors, and ask what they are doing.

the carry cool units are decent, but they don't work well in the texas sun in august... nothing does.

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs
