JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

Hi, sorry for the delay. Most likely your salon AC either has a partially clogged sea strainer causing it to shut off intermittently or you have a low refrigerant charge and the unit is icing up sporadically. If the sea strainer looks good and the water flow to the AC is good, then you'll need an HVAC technician to check and charge the AC unit. The grill/fridge combo in the cockpit can be removed but there will be some rigging holes and attachment holes left over. If you have a dealer or Marine repair facility do it, they could patch the holes but there may still be some cosmetic damage noticeable.
