Love it! And we hate AC. It stays at our slip, so we don't haul it around in the boat. I picked up an extra one last fall from someone getting out of boating. Hard to pass up good deals.

I saw a bayair system work in KW. It worked very well. I think they put them in the Concepts also. He must think things are going to get hot in the cabin.

All it would need to do is lower the temp by 15 to 20 degrees. Anything more would "freeze your azz off".

I would be worried about how it looked. Can it be "installed", or just it just sit out in the open and look like some "jury-rigged" A/C system?

The bay air requires that you feed it with ice.
It is rated at 6,500 Btu(per hour)? Which is slightly greater than a half ton of cooling. One ton is 12,000 Btu/hr which comes about from the archaic concept as the equivalent cooling released by melting one ton of ice per day, e.g., over a 24 hour period. This works out to be like 80 pounds of ice per hour to be a half ton of cooling capacity.

You will never need that much cooling. If I was to take a guess, probably twenty pounds of ice per day will do the job just fine. White deck in the sunlight will make a big difference over darker colors.

You're not trying to "hang meat" in there, are you? Oh, I forgot, it is Clay and he probably is trying to hang meat in there.
