Main Message Board / Installation of Refrigeration
« on: June 08, 2009, 02:42:48 PM »
I am a proud new (to me) owner of a 1992 Catalina 34 (hull 1211) with the walk-thru transom. Upon purchase this spring I thought I might like to install refrigeration into the ice-box.  After an extended weekend cruise this week, with blocks of ice, I have now determined I do indeed want to install refrigeration. (Not too found of the pump system for the icebox)  I am sure there are multiple posts regarding this issue, but since I am new to the forum, I am not sure how to find, so I thought I would just ask. 

I am sure there are many different answers to this question, but would appreciate all responses...PICTURES WOULD ALSO BE HELPFUL...hint, hint.  Here is what I am wondering...

 - Where should the compressor be installed? and how?
 - What is the size of the ice-box...what volume am I trying to cool
 - What are the recommended unit types and brings for both the evaporator and compressor

Any advice would be appreciated.   I sail on western basin of Lake Erie and the temps are fairly mild, with August being in the 90s...so It does not stay too warm too long. Thank you in advance.
