Refrigeration / HVAC

Hi, I'm getting ready to pack my tools for our voyage. I'm trying to decide weather to pack my special refrigeration equipment and supplies.

Is this a trade that can supplement our cruising kitty?

Is this something that the standard boat owner / cruiser is willing to pay for, or is this something that will fall into the catagory of helping out your fellow cruisers?

Thanks for your input!

It sure was when we cruised back in the '90's. Unless refrigeration equipment has changed drastically in the meantime, you would be kicking yourself for NOT bringing it.

ABSOLUTELY! Bring those tools.
HVAC/R is one of the best marine trades, for a cruiser to supplement the kitty.
