what is this?

Obviously this is some kind of cooling unit. It was given to me by someone who didn't know what it was for either. Is it used in the icebox or for cooling the boat itself? Anyone know how it's supposed to be hooked up?

Didn't answer either of my questions.
Am I supposed to apologize here for wasting your time or something?

Re: what is this?

Maybe pictures of the guts would help... My first guess was thermoelectic unit just based on the size, but those hoses have me confused.

Perhaps I seemed a bit harsh. I'm looking for answers from people who have experience with a unit like this.
Google hasn't been much help. This company makes many products. It's much better, to my way of thinking to ask people who might know than a computer.
Thanks for the personal insult though.
Why Canadians are so concerned about the US government when their own is such a mess baffles me, but hey, you be you. "Captain"

Looks like a big heatsink. I'm wondering if it's meant to go in an icebox or for cooling the cabin, or either. Also I don't know if if something like this is meant to be hooked up to sea water or from the freshwater tanks. The former seems more likely to me, but I don't know.

Re: what is this?

Yea, I can see how my post did not help you figure out how to hook it up. So sorry.
