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

It is not as simple as that. As well as the air conditioner you will need the water-cooled silent (just joking--nothing is silent that is diesel engine powered) generator set that allows it to be run non-stop. Most air conditioners use at least one thousand watts--some more. Much more.

I stated that this was only for when hooked to shore power.

If the boat is on a dock... keep the AC in a dock box and place it on board when you need it.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it

That's what we are doing now. Considering keeping it like this and spending money on solar arch/davits.

Bleem... solar and a good battery system is a great investment. If you are anchored off or moor a lot and can limit your electric use you won't need shore power nor a genset. If your in a slip you should be able to maintain full charge without solar... and get by when going on short cruises. High output alt with a smart regulator is money well spent.

Have all that. 650w solar, two Victron controllers, Superwind wide gen. Just mulling the best possible mounting options for all.

Boat came with 2 130w (thought they were 100s) and a blue seas 3000i controller. Will sell the panels and keep the controller as a spare for future expansion.
