Congratulations on your new boat! I believe I looked at this beauty in Stuart and was tempted. So happy it has a new crew!

Thanks. She is getting a topside paint job as we speak. This has been a long road, but the end is in sight. We received the new fuel tank last week and the rudder gudgeon was shipped from PS on Monday- that was the critical path part. Bad things happen when you don't maintain the zincs. Thumper said he had never seen a gudgeon that badly corroded. I will post some pics shortly.

Re: New PSC 37 owner- need help with A/C

On my 37 i installed the 16000btu ac unit in the locker in the quarter berth. I had to take the starteing battery and put be it behind the engine.i put the supply duck in the door that goes into that locker. Had to may the shelve longer for the unit to sit on. There is also room for the pump. The return come through the charttable seat .this puts the noise the unit makesaway away from the pullman berth. I dont live on the boat . If i had it to do over, i would be using the 5000btu ac unit in the hatch. And put that money somewere else. This my 2cents

Pictures of the boat, the areas you need to pass through would help, Running simple duct-work is not rocket science, and going through a bulk head should not weaken it if you stay clear of the edges.

Our 16K BTU unit is under the V berth. The duct work is run thru the hanging locker, exiting into both the top surface to cool the v berth and the side to cool the cabin. Eats up some storage space, but I can still hang foulies and have hanging fabric shelves x 2 towards the front of the locker to hold T shirts, etc. Had to sacrifice most of the accessible storage under the v berth, tho. It's kinda loud to sleep on top of the compressor, but it drowns out the hubby's snoring. Haha! He will say same about me! We also installed a Smart Start capacitor, so we can run the AC at anchor with the Honda 2000, if it gets too hot outside. Our boat's a '77, so the general layout may differ from yours. I'll be glad to send pics, if you like. Oh, and congrats on a fabulous boat!!
