First of all, no, I don't want to go to the expense of installed AC. I can use my spinnaker halyard
to move the Carry-On from my center hatch
off and on the boat with ease for sailing. It does a GREAT job of cooling
Here's the problem: it drips water
. It drips water
in an inconvenient place, as well. I actually have a rectangular bucket that would catch it all, but it would sit half on and half off the small refrig. Or I have to put the table up just for the bucket, which takes up a lot of space.
It seems to be leveled well; a couple of neighbors helped me and the bubble is well within the lines. But the condensation
drips into the cabin
There doesn't seem to be any way to attach a drain hose to it that could be led either outside or to the bilge
, but maybe I've missed something. The drain hose would actually be ideal, because I have slats, not solid wood, in front of the head
and it would be very easy to run it to the bilge
. But there seems to be no receptor on the AC for a hose.
Any suggestions? I really don't mind not having AC when I sail, but at the dock
there's less breeze, and where I am in the summer it doesn't cool off at night.
Thanks for any bright ideas!
