From bouncing around several boat forums that have activity, I have noticed that many of them talk about Air-conditioning the cabin. I have the Trojan Express 26, has anyone ever installed an air-condition in this boat or one similar to it. I am very interested in some information as to that installation.

Having a cool cabin when you are on the hook would be nice. I wont talk as to how I will power it, I will leave that up to your imagination. I would think it would take little power, a 5000btu would freeze you out that cabin on the 26ft boat that I have.

As Johnnie V put it, I need input.

I'm not sure what your cabin / cockpit looks like.

I have seen several people cut a hole in the wall and mount a home unit in there.

I also have heard of people dissasembling a home unit, mounting the control panel, encasing the coils in plexi-glass, and plumbing it to a through-hull. Some guy did this and went into great detail about it on the Baylinerownersclub.net forum (I think that's what it's called). He mounted the coils under the B-Berth.

If I was going to do it, I would probably go with a slightly larger unit, say 7500 BTU's or something.

I had one of those portable units that fit into the V-Berth hatch that worked pretty well, but it leaked if it rained really hard, and was a PITA to take down and put up.

Done a bunch of searching yesterday pursuant to the air-conditioning. I kind of like the idea of using one of the camper roof mount units. This can be mounted directly over the top of the cabin, wont obstruct the view thru the windshield, and wont leak in the rain. It is a little pricey ,but tell me what ever you do on a camper or boat is.

Not sure what I will do, I know I donít want to cob in a home unit. As it stands now, that roof top unit looks the charm.
