Thank you Scottster for the Dometic icemaker suggestion. I have never seen one of those before, and then looked on Amazon and I have seen a ton of them.
We tend to use the generator
for 2-3 hours a day, given that these make about 33 pounds in 24 hours and a 15 minute to first ice, it *seems* like I could get roughly 2.5 to 3.5 pounds of ice during my normal hours of operation - which would be perfect!
We will buy one and try it out.
Currently I use it as an auxiliary storage
& other provisions, but it actively irritates me, on an otherwise well thought out boat
. Ultimately, I would like to convert it to a deep freezer
I think. Would love to hear more feedback on that possibility.
BTW: As for ice in BVI, the cheapest I have found so far is $4 for a 10 pound bag if you walk up to the ice house in JVD, BVI. Who knows of cheaper ice?
