Hi. Depends where you sail and if you have air conditioning
. The Danfoss compressor
is small...uses little electricity because itís small and good technology. Small is still small. Iím not going to say which freezers we removed but what works on a large air conditioned yacht in Florida
will not get anywhere near the freezing temperatures recommended by food
plant inspectors if you are not full time ac. I built a box with 6Ē of insulation
, not 1 or 1.5Ē. Now, a small compressor
well. Itís a system. Insulation, gaskets, plate and compressor. The new scroll compressors are great if the other components match. Open the door and stand there watching the food
. Load up lots of hot stuff to freeze. Understanding the BTUs needed to freeze water
or melt it, is not a brain challenge. Remember mom saying shut the door is all thatís required.
We switched to commercial refrigeration
units like you find in restaurants and are so much happier than anything labeled marine
I have a crew of manatees requiring cold beer
and crisp pizza.
Happy trails to you.
