Adding Gen and A/C
 
many of the boats i am finding are charter boats.
none have A/C or a generator.

i have seen A/C units on here for 1000
i am assuming they need wired, and ducted, can that even be done?

as for the gen, how hard to hook up and install are they? can i get a nice 5000W onan for a good price somewhere?

also where is the best place to add diesel tanks, and how many gallons fit?

Just so you know, the A/C units are sea water cooled not air cooled. That requires a haulout and thruhull but you'll have to do that for the genny. The whole package could run you $20,000. Probably more. I am a sweater also so I feel your pain. BOB

oh! that an old TPI, saw one of those over here for 170K with the gen and ac in it. i am to understand the 410 is much larger. that why i will likely end up p[aying an extra 75K, wow, i must be nuts.

The only time in the carribean I felt I needed A/C was on the hard in Trinidad. Things are cooler in the anchorage. If you're living aboard in Fl at the dock....well that would be different! Sure you could have a miserable night...once in a great while...but that's what the netting in the front of the Cat is for...under the stars!

i cant sleep if its over about 76. depending on humidity. thou i have to admit, i am sure i will start to lose weight on the cat when sailing, work cannot be avoided.
