Beat The Heat !!

This was the best money I've ever spent ! I took out the forward hatch which was 22X22", and had a piece of stainless steel cut with an opening of 14X14". I now have a 13,500 BTU air conditioner with optional heat that draws 9 amps under full load ! Total cost, $800, comfort, priceless !!

17,000 BTU built in King air for $125 (used) - and it warms us in the winter, too. Had it for about 5 years - works great - but only when plugged in at the dock. Probably one of the best bargains we've ever gotten - and we've gotten quite a few: Autohelm 4000 - free; roller furling - free; 45 lb stainless steel CQR -$150; I could go on! Worst investment- Adler Barbour cold plate refrigeration - paid too much, repaired too often, doesn't work well when it does work.

Your AC looks nice though - and this summer heat has been horrendous this year. Enjoy and stay cool!

I got a Cruisair Carry-on with my boat. Sold it for $250 (?). Would have left it otherwise. That means my boat only cost $39,750.
