Thumbs up DIY Fridge Install

I did my own install of a Frigoboat unit with the "keel cooler" option about a decade ago. Very Quiet (no fan) and efficient. The install is very fiddley work, in places where one can put only one arm and shoulder at a time, and some swearing will be needed.


After wising up and putting a gasket around the lid, almost zero condensation or frost on the evaporator plate.

I have some pics over at EY.org in a refrigeration thread. PM me for a link if wou wish.

Take your time, diagram out what your boat requires, and be sure to buy the parts kit from a reputable supplier who can answer your questions when you are upside down in the boat with a drill in one hand and cell phone in the other!

Frigoboat Home Page
These folks were extremely helpful and patiently answered all my stupid questions.

It really depends.
I've known scullions and jack-a-napes to really screw that job up. Dolts, even poltroons can manage it if they team up, or at least get some advice from a varlet. Naves, never.
But a buffoon ought to manage it ok.
If you run into real problems, though, your best bet would be to hire a lout.
