Thanks for your input
As usual this group as been very helpful. I think I will go with a dedicated thru hull located near the exisitng main raw water intake for the engine, place the unit in the wet locker behind the head, discharge to starboard out of that locker. There is plenty of room for duct work thru the bottom of the head cabinet and to an output around the hanging locker.
The yard here quoated a price of 7400 for the install and a Dometic Cruisair 12K BTU, but I think i can go chepaer than that with local talent and getting a less expensive unit.
Where is Patty Ann in Daytona?

Thanks for all of the replies.
I think I have an excellent idea how the install would look. Now I just need to see how badly I need it..

Mine was a Marine Air 16,0000. Nice unit all self contained. The seawater pump was mounted on the floor of the wet locker. There was a problem with those pumps, intenal leakage and failure, about 10 years ago. However, the replacement was still going strong when I sold the boat.

Also, how many BTU, and what make, did the factory install?

don't know, it is below the counter in the head, that would be easy. I never looked at the fore and aft bulkhead penetrations, but look in the lockers and see if you can get a sawzall in there and you might be in business.

Thanks........If I tried this as a retrofit I guess the difficulty would be running the duct outboard of the head.

I can answer that as it is Asylum. The air intake is on the stbd bulkhead of the aft berth. The discharge is a duct that runsoutbd the head into the hanging locker fwd of the head. Then a grill was installed on the top of that and blows out into the main cabin. It puts out more than enough air to cool the whole boat. A wood elongated box was installed in the cabin hanging locker to act as the duct and it did remove some of the locker capacity, but only inboard. The outbd portion of the locker was unaffected. This was a factory install and nicely done.
