Re: What AC unit to buy?

I own a 46ft. cat, and have over the years been more than comfortable with no a/c. At the dock I build a box for cheap a/c units, 2, to fit over the hatches. Total cost for the 2 units $200.00. This was while living near Jax Florida. In 5 years cruising maybe 2-3 nights I wished I had air. At the dock it was needed for the summer, but very inexpensive........i2f

SAILING is not always a slick magazine cover!
BORROWED..No single one of is as smart as all of us!

Good for you Dot, that's exactly my plan for a boat I just bought, a modified washboard and an air-con from WalMart. The best idea ever for a sailboat...
