So for an active boater, the engineering of a marine unit may be worth it. ( vs a less sailed vessel)
I think a marine unit is especially useful when the boat's tied up and has access to shore power
. You can keep the ports
and hatches closed and avoid insect infestations. After being on the hard
for a year (hence, no a/c) with the windows opened, I ended up with a flying termite infestation that required a $1200 tenting.
