Re: Air conditioning on a small sailboat
For our Coronado 25, we just bought a $300 6000 BTU portable unit. When in use it can sit on the counter in the galley. The exhaust hose will go out a companionway door I am crafting with an exhaust hole cut in it, and the drain will drip drip drip right into the sink and out to sea.
It will fit comfortably in the deck box when not in use, and if we want to take it to sea it will fit in a storage compartment in the cockpit very easily.
$300, done. 6000 btu in that boat should have icicles forming on our noses.
My initial idea was to get one of those RV rooftop units, but they don't look like they can be easily put on and off as needed. I love the hatch a/c at WM, but I don't have $1500 to spend!
