I expect about half of this thread to be rehashes of old threads and I apologize in advance.
The boat, 30 foot Coronado, is filling up. I bought a cool gimbaled stove the other day so that cubby is now full. I still desperately want to have refrigeration
. Greg pretty much had me convinced to go with an Engel but my one "no compromise" location is now taken.
I also feel a bit wasteful leaving the stock refrigerator
cubby used for dry storage
. I've heard the insulation
in the stock ones it totally inadequite but I hate to cut holes in anything to see how much there is. It is too small to drop a complete unit in. I am open (kinda) to a DIY kit and boy does that whole rparts/bluewhatever stuff look nice...
There is no way the boat is getting hauled out. If I did something water
cooled could I just put a T after the water
intake for the motor
? Then another T to the sink drain?
I think I've got enough budget
left that I could brute force the power/battery setup and go with something less efficient at first for the fridge- what is the one that freezes a big block of ice? Anyway.
If I could find an Engel style unit that was less than 13 inches or so tall I could put it under the table (I don't want to lose my ability to lower it into the bed
position). I was also thinking I could put it back at the foot of the quarterberth. It would be a huge pain to get into- but that would be good for making sure I really want in before I waste entergy...
I guess I am looking for more than just technical advice here.
