To all: I wanted to again say thanks for the earlier responses and to report current
status re: AC on Un Mundo. We went ahead and installed two Flagship 16.5 btu units, one in the salon
that cools there and aft stateroom, and one in the galley
that cools there and with the directional grills very nicely manages the mid guest cabin
and fwd head
(leaving the doors open). Installation
was mostly completed in Panama on our mooring
at BYC, with some final work done DURING our Panama Canal
Transit -- no kidding, we were in the lock being raised when we turned the galley
unit on for the first time.
Thanks to those who steered me to Flagship. We are now at Club Nautico in Cartagena
, loving all this nice dry cold air. Both units work great. We spent a month in the San Blas Islands at anchor
and underway, running both easily from the Kohler 5K. Very sweet. Couldn't be happier.
