Lol! There is no fortune to be made in refrigeration and air conditioning for boats! Sailors are too cheap to pay for innovation!

We gurus have gone to where the real money is: commercial and industrial hvac-r.

(even residential is more profitable than marine!)

There is an exception. A sailor stuck in a remote anchorage with failing refrigeration will trade copious amount of alcohol for a repair.

This is true! But you better have GOOD rum on board! Bacardi just won't cut it!

Actually I was quite surpirzed to find out that bacardi 8 year is a really good rum! It's not heavy on the vanilla and spice (which I think is good) and has the woody character of a good whiskey.
