Air conditioning in Mexico

Its's hot here! Anybody have recommendations of type of air conditioner for our Catalina 42'? Any reliable place in Puerto Vallarta to purchase from? Self install or have it done?

Re: Air conditioning in Mexico

No first hand experience, but:

1. Check with Dick Markey at the Paradise Village Marina. He's been around "forever" and knows the local vendors and craftsmen.

2. Contact Ivett Pegueros (A Stitch in TIme). ph 322.121.1802 or 322.292.0721. Her husband is a very good all-around boat "engineer/manager" and can do or manage/coordinate all kinds of work. He is American and a boat owner so really understands what cruisers need and want. I've used both her and her husband (Sorry, can't find his card and don't remember his name off hand) for many boat projects and always satisfied. Ivett's email is her full name as above (but no spaces) at gmail.com.

3. Get on the morning VHF net and ask.

4. Many folks purchase a less-expensive window unit locally and fabricate a hood/adapter to make it fit either the companionway (hassle) or a hatch.

Thanks. We have a small window unit we use in the top hatch. Its great, but not quite enough to sleep at night. We have talked with Dick about other matters and find him to be nice, but pricey. Will check with your other contact. Thanks much.
