Re: Air Conditioning

Years ago we saw an interesting A/C setup using a window unit. The sailor had a prefab dog house on the dock at his slip in the spot where others had a dock box. The dog house had a window A/C unit installed in its side. Coming out the door of the dog house were two insulated hoses. One hose went to one port on the boat; the other hose went to another port. The first hose brought cooled air from the A/C unit to the boat; the second carried warm air from the boat back to the A/C unit. When the sailor left the dock, he stuck the hoses into the dog house door and left it all behind. When he came back he hooked up the hoses and had a cool boat.
