I would get one with the Danfoss compressor
. Waeco used to have these, but not sure anymore as there is a Chinese knockoff DC compressor
the Engels are good, but basically throwaways. The danfoss units are more readily repairable.
No doubt the extra baggage fees
will be far less than the cost difference at current
exchange rates. In 2006 we carried on our ICOM SSB
and tuner in the cardboard ICOM
boxes when returning to NZ.
Beaut little spot you have there on Kawau. We'll be seeing you for the end times.
