Re: Voyaging on $500 per month
If I did peltier, I'd put one going to the fridge. Then I'd put one between the fridge and the freezer. So the freezer's peltier "pushes off" the fridge temperature and the fridge's peltier "pushes off" the outside temperature (water or whatever).
But it would have to be something active like your antifreeze flow, so there's 100% insulation everywhere.
And if I ever commission a boat to be built for me, I'm showing up at the factory with some Aerogel (even the lower R mesh type), some sheets of hydrophobic foam, and a hard hat. We're doing that fridge and freezer right.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
