Hello: I would like to know if the the owner of "Tiki Bar" is happy about the performance & location of his AC unit. If happy, please share some installation details (plumbing, ducting, isolation from bilge, size of supply cabinet). I am going with 12,000 BTU unit ? This is DIY project except for the 110 volt wiring. Thank you, Larry Fell in Florida

Thank you for the reply. No good deed goes unpunished sooo:
1. I cannot determine if the seacock should go just outboard (first choice) of the engine stringer or further down (the keel box) on the inboard side (of the stringer). Target area is directly below the Perko battery selector. Where is your seacock located to insure a positive flow of water to the strainer & pump?
2. Does the wooden plenum sweat? Is the inside of the box insultated?
3. Does your plenum extend down below the level of the seat storage panels? I assume you used the "arms" of a "T" fitting to connect the a/c unit to the plenum. This would leave the "leg" of the "T" to feed air to the forward cabin. Is one arm of the "T" connected to the bottom or to the vertical side of the plenum? Whew.
4. New topic. How long has the TreadMaster been down and how is the
contact cement or epoxy holding up? Thank you, Larry
