Re: Marine Air Conditioning

Now that we're out cruising I can see what people are actually doing. Most cruisers have a 40' boat (+-) and finite funds. Not that many people have AC but most have a fridge.
Some people around here, in the summer, go into a marina, plug in, and mount a $200.00 window air conditioner to a hatch with some plywood ducting and throw it away in October.

deepfrz sounds like a very wise man. 4 yr apprenticeship,2 yrs at wake tech and 20 yrs in the industry theres not much I haven't seen but anytime you deal with a new product it pays to understand it.
the fundamentals are all the same but almost daily I see evidence that "professionals" in this field seem to skip over the fundamentals for example if you want to hold the same temperature in the head that your holding in the forward berth you don't just run a duct into each room. you have to calculate air changes per hour based on the cubic feet of the room and deliver your conditioned air accordingly. Someone quoted earlier that it's not rocket science. well it's not but it is a highly skilled trade if done right.

lol..I've spent the last 2 years on my little 22 during the week of the fourth of july and I've considered doing the same thing both years.
It ain't pretty but it beats a hundred degree cabin at night.

Re: Marine Air Conditioning

So you can size ducting and do heat loss/gains. Couple more things that say you know your trade and aren't just a parts changer. He does looks wise though, so maybe you should take some schooling.

On a boat as in anything field modification required.

Re: Marine Air Conditioning

Air conditioning is very much necessary if you want to enjoy your summer. In summer season no one lives without air conditioning and refrigeration facilities. You can do more work if you have an air conditioner system in your home as well as any work place. Installation of air conditioner is also very easy and another important thing is that you should maintain it properly so that you can fully enjoy its experience. Many companies will provide this facility and you can take help from that.

Re: Marine Air Conditioning

I replaced the compressor fan motor 2 years ago. The fridge cost $900 new, including tax and delivery, plus the motor 2 years ago ended up costing me $120. I just priced new fridges and ones of comparable size are $900 and up.
Before I start calling around to air conditioning repair men, I thought I'd check to see if anyone has an idea. Some of the repair places won't give you an estimate even if you know exactly what is wrong (I hate that).
Is it worth having repaired (it's in good condition otherwise) or should I just trash it and buy a new one?
