I'm planning a cruise
to the Swain Reefs
area of the Great Barrier Reef
in a year or two, where there are no provisioning
stops. The thought of running out of ice .... aaaargh!
Here's the solution I'm going to trial in the lead up. I've got it at home currently and it works well on our home 240V supply. The specs show it as 130W so shouldn't be too heavy a draw on our power supply. It's reasonably small and fits neatly between the nav table and the adjacent seat on my Dufour
365 Grand Large, close to an inverter
power point. Claims to make 16.2kg of ice in 24hrs, although it would need to be emptied of ice and topped up with water
many times in a day. I think running it for an hour or two at a time (while motoring probably) would be ample for icecubes for sundowners, as well as keeping the beers cold in our drinks esky (Australian for portable icebox).
Check it out - anyone else used one??
