Well, my dock mate has dibs on it. He's been lusting after it for his blow boat. But if you help me sell my Donzi I'll give it to you as a finders fee ;-) I've been lusting after a certain Formula cruiser....Originally Posted by Clay Washington

One other AC unit to consider is the Mermaid Marine Air units. They are similarly inexpensive (you can find them just as cheap if you look) and they have a 5K and 6.5K btu units that they've confirmed will run on the 1000 watt Honda, which is a bit smaller and lighter than my 2000. Their 9K unit runs on the 2000 also.
One note about the Hondas. They are "surge rated" for up to 3x their rated amps for up to 3 seconds. This is why a 2000w honda can start up a 10K btu A/C, whereas some other 2000w units can't. While I need 20-25amps at startup, the honda just revs up for a second and then settles back down to quiet mode. It actually powers a nice space heater during our 2 weeks of winter, too.
We might be in the "spectator fleet" along the route during your april poker run. While my Donzi cruiser will do 45mph on the gps, that ain't enough to mix it up with you guys. But maybe we'll catch you on the raftup. I'll be the one with the cool cabin
