If a boat has all the good stuff-a big inverter, a bilge filled with deep cycle batteries, ample alternators, then a 120VAC fridge could make sense. Next to a dedicated deep freezer, a fridge is the most starving energy hog on a boat.

Used to recommend DC-powered holding-plate systems, but now favors DC-powered constant-cycling in many cases, because little compressors are getting more effective and higher-output, and insulation is becoming better.

Washburn was somewhat concerned about my husband’s reaction as he has been a bit gunshy about meatloaf kind recipes recently so I must tread lightly. I was super excited to make this one again, it’d been years.

Blue North Fisheries, in operation since 1983, currently owns and manages eight head and bowel deep freezer long liners and one crab catcher vessel. I use it as a fridge, but am planning to buy another for use as a freezer. I have a 40 qt Engle on the boat and a Edge Star in my own camping rig.

I added another section of pipe above the coupling, so the conduit extends up to the highest part of the cabinet behind the icebox.

The prohibition on producing R12 refrigerant has resulted in mistakes in how to service these units, costing many boaters hundreds of dollars. Hermetically sealed compressors which are powered by alternating current (110 or 220 volt) may be filled with Alkylbenzene oil, which can be compatible with HCFC component refrigerants.

It’s the primary bait I’ve used which can be used without salt and brine to toughen it up. At least twice a season, I will restock my bait freezer with various-size ballyhoo, mullet, Spanish mackerel and squid. By far, this reddish label has the best scale retention of any lure I’ve ever used.

, a maker of marine products, bought Norcold last year. Visiting a Dutch built motor yacht lately, I admired a custom holding plate fridge and freezer. In the 1970s, small holding plate systems were introduced to the boating market by Grunter and Crosby, giving sailors reliable mechanical refrigeration for the very first time.

It included both an engine driven compressor and a 12V compressor which ran from 110VAC via an inverter. I installed a Sea Frost system on my Tartan 37. As the stuff in the freezer is removed, replace it with plastic jugs full of water. They cut and spread a high performance (read also high price) insulation material, sell a great ready to install freezer and icebox lid, and then of course have AC and DC cooling systems.
