Marine Air Conditioning

30 June 2008 | Tropical Dreamer
Keith, hot and humid
The sailboat isn't taking on water. This stream of water is the air conditioner on the sailboat working. Marine air conditioners use water pumped from the ocean to release the heat created by the compressor. It took about an hour to prime the pump, but once it started pumping water, the air conditioner started going strong. I don't know yet how good the system is. Frankly it seemed rather weak by Tucson standards, but it was probably 90 decrees in the boat when I turned it on so it may take a few hours to chill the boat down. The plan is to bring the motorhome down late tonight and unload my belongings into the boat while it is docked and while the marina is closed for the night. Then tomorrow I will head out and anchor outside the town dock and begin transitioning the dogs.
