Good Vendor Report / Sea Frost

Hy Guys,

Well the 11 year old cold plate on my Sea Frost engine driven refrigeration unit gave up the ghost and leaked all its fluid out. We are leaving for vacation soon and need refrigeration.

I removed the holding plate and the compressor and delivered both to Sea Frost in NH. Cleve, the owner, cleaned it, re-sealed it, clear coated it, re-filled it and pressure tested it.

When I went to pick the holding plate up I asked what I owed him? Nothing was the response!!! Cleve also leak tested my compressor and gave it the ok for many, many more hours of use. He also cleaned up the compressor and gave me a set of new o-rings to put it back together with.

Remember this unit was 11 years old, I was not the original owner, though he is a friend of mine, and it had leaked due to some aluminum oxidation at the seam which is sealed with silicone.

That is top notch SERVICE!! Sea Frost is now also offering a very, very nicely built 12v refrigeration system too that I got a chance to see being built while I was there..

Great company!!

labatt will become famous soon enough
We've got the 12v Sea Frost BD system - it works well and doesn't draw a ridiculous amount of power. The only issue with them is that they use Danfoss compressors which can cause interference on some RF bands.

I am a big fan of them too. We did a big install with them holding our hand all the way through on Camaraderie... a wonderful system for a bigboat. Then a year ago I put in a BDXp air/water cooled system into a large cat and they sent everything pre-bent for the custom installation and it was basically hook up the electric, bolt the stuff in and we were done in just a couple of hours with a perfect custom fit.
Fine products...great service during sale and installation...and apparently for at least 11 years thereafter!
