Stay Cool With New Webasto A/C Products

Webasto Air Conditioner

June 5, 2016

Now the climate on board can be a lot more comfortable with two new air conditioning products from Webasto.

FCF Platinum Self-Contained Air Conditioning Series

The new FCF Platinum Self-Contained Air Conditioning Series (shown left, above) is the latest development in Webasto‘s line of marine comfort solutions. FCF Platinum features an improved design, offering a higher BTU/h rating across a variety of ambient scenarios, while still providing unmatched product reliability and a two-year warranty.

Designed with a long and slim footprint ideal for retrofitting, FCF Platinum units feature a marine-grade stainless steel frame for durability and longevity, a standard digital display, controller and cable. A well balanced, proprietary compressor is quieter than ever before.

Available in 12,000 and 16,000 BTU/h models, 115V and 230V.

KoolAir “Run Dry”Coolant Pump

A clogged sea strainer can quickly ruin an otherwise perfect day on board if you’re left with a melted coolant pump and no A/C. The fully submersible KoolAir pump (shown right, above) is the only coolant pump offering run dry protection. Designed specifically to withstand higher temperatures when liquid is not flowing, the KoolAir pump will run several hours before shutting itself down – without damage. After that, reintroduce water, allow the pump to cool down and KoolAir will again operate normally. Pumps 500 gallons per hour. 115 and 230 volt models available.

The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
