Air Conditioning for 380s

Air Conditioning for 380s

I have a Catalina 380, Hull #380.  After 10 years of cruising the Great Lakes, I have decided to install air conditioning on my boat.  I am considering a 16,500 BTU unit in the salon area and maybe vent to the V-berth.  Anyone have a factory schematic of AC in their owners manual that you could scan and email to me?

There is no factory installation or diagrams for A/C. It was a dealer installed item and every one is different. I did a Mainsheet article several issues back that outlines the ducting required for a nice installation where the unit is installed under the settee just forward of the galley sink and ducts to the upper fwd bulkhead with a main outlet for the saloon and a small outlet (close able) to the vberth. Where are you in the Great Lakes?
