Off topic.  Does anyone have a Carry-Cool or similar hatch-mounted air
conditioner in used but working condition that you would like to sell?

Bill, when I was in a marina in the area in 97, a guy mioored nearby had just installed an AC heŽd bought at Home Depot on the front hatch with a plywood cover that kept  the air in0 the boat. He told me he had it sitting oin the compnionway before, an even simpler solution, except for the slighńy acrobatic entry procedure...

That is what I did as well.  $110 is a heck of a lot cheaper the $800.  Works great, drains to the cockpit.  The majority of boats with portable air in South Texas use this method.

Bill, Paul Esterle and I did an article for the Nor'Easter last year on how
I mounted a room ac unit in the companionway of my Coronado 27.  I can send
you a copy of the drawings that Paul did, the pics of the installation, and
the how-to I wrote it that will work for you.
