Air conditioner for 1979 carver mariner

Postby Jrumfola » August 6th, 2018, 6:23 am

Looking for air conditioning options for our 1979 carver mariner. We recently purchased our first carver and renovating the interior. We purchased a large portable ac 10,000 but but it's still stifling. It is docked in our yard but the coolest it is getting is 80 degrees. Will that change once we are on the water? Wasn't looking to spend a fortune but need something that will make the heat more manageable as two dogs and teenagers will be with us. Suggestions? We live in New York and will mostly use it at the dock slip and fire island where we can use 30 amp shore power. Thanks in advance!

What kind of 10K unit are you using? One that goes though a top hatch?

A year ago I bought a 16K home portable unit on CL. I "plumbed" the 6" exhaust to one of the portlights (used an old one that was all scratched up). Works great cooling our salon on a 35' aft cabin, but doesn't circulate back to the aft cabin. The downside with these kind of portables is that they are constantly sucking in outside air (hot, humid) into the boat that it has to fight. It stills works, but not nearly as good as a true marine unit.

This year I picked up a 7K marine unit that I'm going to install in the aft cabin. I have it temp'd in right now, and it's cooling things just fine.

It is a portable 12k unit. We have everything currently off the window so I'm in the process of making new snap in blackout curtains. Hopefully that will do the trick. I may still return the unit and opt for something larger.
