I'm not in any way disalusioned about the unit . Used to keep one of these babies in my truck.
One part of the final install that isnt shown in these results is the hot side when installed in my ice box will be in the space below the sink that in mostly sides to the bare hull
below the waterline. The temp in that locker is basicly the same as the seawater that I'm floating in which when I checked it two days ago was 53 degrees.
Last summer the warmest water
I saw was 63 degrees.
I realise if this boat
goes south so does the efficiency and effectiveness of this system.
I have even conciderd doing a freon based heat pipe. ( But that would take money
and I'm cheap)
I have 100 watts solar
and I have all led lighting
so my power usage is well under 5 ah per day
Looking to use the extra power constructively.
Edit : the specs for the pielter plate I'm going to use state a 40°f temp difference
