Re: If you had a rich friend offer to buy your AC?

Crusair, Marine Air all the marine reverse cycle units are pretty much the same thin walled copper tubing, proprietary circuitry and corrosion prone materials except for Flagship Marine. Flagship Marine units use far superior materials, no proprietary parts and have one significant difference. .....The heat side of the unit is straight electric furnace. I have never seen corrosion on my units.

I've had these units in each of my three boats since 1981 and since 1994 as a full time liveaboard. In that time I have replaced two relays which were $20ea. I simply would not consider another brand.

PS I installed two of these units my self, very, very simple.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
