SAIL - - Gear -

Sailors in south­ern lat­i­tudes en­joy great sail­ing con­di­tions dur­ing the win­ter but not so much dur­ing the height of sum­mer, when heat and hu­mid­ity can turn a sail­boat’s cabin into a sweat­box. There are some fine ma­rine air-con­di­tion­ing units around, but their bulk re­stricts the size of boat they’ll fit into. The three mod­els that com­prise We­basto’s new BlueCool A-se­ries air han­dlers are all dif­fer­ent shapes, mak­ing it eas­ier to find one that fits a par­tic­u­lar boat. Cool­ing ca­pac­i­ties range from 4,000 to 36,000 BTU/hour. All mod­els are equipped with We­basto’s In­stant Drain Con­den­sate Man­age­ment Sys­tem, which all but elim­i­nates wa­ter spills. They can also be fit­ted with heat­ing el­e­ments. From $1,300. We­basto, we­basto-ma­
