They are from a book I am writing about marine refrigeration
. It is still a work in progress. I would love to have comments on it.
My plan was to find a way to distribute it for free and this seems to be the place. I would like to attach it but it is 3.4mb in PDF format. If anyon wants a copy of it I will find a way to make it available.
works is not very well understood by the cruising community. What the design parameters are for an energy efficient system is less so.
A system that a person handy with tools that can be easily and inexpensively built and repaired using over the counter parts

An article in Cruising World, March 2006, The Log of Ithaka, by Douglas Bernon describes the designing of and building one of the earlier systems I built while in the San Blass. Made a lot of mistakes
but we had a lot of fun. Going for parts
was even more fun.
