Mark, what boat companies are putting in your units as an option?

The Concept guys have been using our product since 2001. Glasstream out of Panama City, Nor-tech, Cigarette has purchased a few. If you make a post on the Concept site inquiring about our unit you should get a response from someone who has used it. If you try our unit and aren't satisfied I'll refund your money less shipping. We also offer a 30 month warranty. This unit only requires ice, no maintenance.
Thank you for your interest.
Best Regards,
Mark Mize

Just throwing a thought on the table.....What a lot of folks use around here quite successfully is one of those $79 5k BTU window units from Home Depot or Lowes. They sit it either in the cabin door, or back against the bench seat with the cockpit cover on, and simply plug it into shore power at the dock using the proper adapter. The condensation of course simply drains to the rear cockpit drains.Weighs very little and gets put in the shed/garage when not in use. Depending on your bolster stand configuration/space they fit nicely bungied underneath the passenger seat with a boat cushion or foam layer if needed. It ain't pretty, and a bit "Jethro" but it's effective, cheap, and very portable.

Again, just throwin' a thought out there.

Sounds like a plan, Ratman!

Bottom line... I want the option to have some air conditioning on my boat during the hot summer months here in Texas. I only live 5 miles from the marina. If I can get the boat back into the slip, I doubt that I will sleep onboard. I will just drive home.

I have researched several options, and I think that a permanent, build-in unit that runs on shore power (or a portable generator) is my best option. I will still consider a pre-owned 115V "suitcase" A/C unit, but only if the price if right.

Go anchor in the middle of the lake and hide in your cabin till you kill your batteries!

If I knew you were such a wuss I would of charged you double to haul your boat to TX.

LOL @ Jim!

The A/C is not for me. I love the heat! It's for the Claymates!

It's ALL about the Claymates!
