I have one...It fits in the head comp. on my TG...It is a lifesaver on those nasty muggy days .
There is no way I could carry one of those Hatch units over the bow everytime I wanted to use it

Hey i hate to say it but i have entertained the thought of just getting one of those small $88 window units and retro-ing it into my Scarab. I know it's "trailer parkish" but that boat is my Winnabago for the water (i would never consider anything like this for the Donzi though ). I think theres enough room behind the steps or under the dash somewhere to whittle out a space to stash it and still have enough air to it. Yea i know i may only get one season out of it but its only $88 bucks (ok . . . let the bashing begin its deserved)

I had one in my house. (No central A/C and didn't want to block out one of my bedroom windows completely). It could not keep up on super hot days so i switched to a window unit. The hose is for air transfer and the one I had evaporated most/all the water. There was a tray with a fill light just in case but it never accumulated any water. Here is a link to some. For a boat cabin it would be great if you get one that wasn't too big. Mine was like R2-D2!

TOM A, thanks for your input, think i changed my mind again, im gonna get one see how it does, i was concerened about it leaking a bunch of water down in cabin, i thought the hose going outside was for circulation and not a drain, jus wanted to make sure

i have thought the same thing. I sleep on my boat alot and i cant say there has been more then a few times that it was unbearable. Usually a fan works fine, both my boats have big deck hatches so getting a cross through breeze isnt to hard.
