of 150k, I'm wondering if these items can be added to an existing boat without completely gutting it. Surely this has been done before and somebody else has come across this predicament. I'd hate to pass on a solid boat (looking for one between 38' and 42') just because it is missing something that I could add after the purchase
. Thanks for any and all help.
I just bought a ProKat 2860 and it has an AC unit already installed. The AC was part of the "weekender package" that included a 30A shore power
panel, a GFI outlet in the cabin
, a hot water
heater and a battery charging
system. The idea was that you could spend the night at the marina. Anyway, I bought the boat with the intent of overnighting on the Gulf, so I am buying
a Yamaha generator
and after we anchor
I will just pull it out, set it on the deck
and go for it. Super quiet and runs 10 hrs on a tank of gas.
If it gets too rough to run the generator
, it will be time to head
back to shore anyway.
