A/C (& heat) in a P31-2

Has anyone installed a reverse cycle A/C & heater in their P31-2? We had air & heat in a Catalina 34 and miss it (now) in our Pearson. The space beside the mast under the settee against the bulkhead seems like a good spot and, I think, can shoe-horn in a 10,000 btu unit with the through-hulls already close beside it and the duct space available along the hull behind the head to the V-berth.

Would love to hear any success stories if it has been done.

We're looking at dumping a wad into our 1987 P31-2 for the next 25 years as there is nothing that has impressed us enough to move up, or over. The price of new "equivalent" boats are staggering and THE ADMIRAL and I have decided to upgrade the Pearson with a few nicities.

Most units are very DIY friendly. you already seem to have a handle on it.

Suggestion. before you dump a load of $ into her.. you may want to have structure, keel, rudder, rigging inspected. Age does have it's affects.. jus sayin..
