    We had one in the mid nineties that we used on a 32 fountain and a 31 bullet. It will freeze your ass out of that cabin. It doesn't always seal properly but that didn't really matter.

    A great unit. It will leak in the rain sometimes. It will FREEZE your a$$ off. Go with the bigger one. Can be found on ebay and other boating sites. Great resale value can be had from $350 and up.
    But the best thing is an installed system by far. If you are going to keep the ride for a while go with a permanent system.The carryon will get bounced around when getting big air!!!!

    I have used that same unit. It is pretty darn cold. The worst part about it is slinging it up onto and off of the bow each night/morning. Its heavy and awkward.

    Several of us here in the local area have been buying small 5000-6500 btu normal home window air conditioning units (45-55 lbs), and placing them in the cabin access door to the cabin (on the floor), only when needed. You can obtain a nice 3-4" thick piece of foam from a local upholsterer to fill the rest of the cabin door opening. It works well, and its cheaper.

    However, after a year of using a portable AC unit as described above, I plan to install AC inside the boat this year. Its quite the hassle to have to deal with a portable. If you need AC (which you do in TX); Clay bite the 'Bullet' and put in a permanent mount unit. Its TOTALLY worth it.

    We have just taken on another advertiser that provides Outerlimits and Nor-Tech with their 12v air cond systems. Hold off before purchasing and I will post the information shortly.
