Some tasks in the Journeyman project have been stubbornly resisting getting done. The fridge and freezer installation is one of them. As I wrote about earlier, I have done a special version of the heat exchanger integrated into the hull bottom plate.

Now the story about getting this finally connected and running involves several different companies, odd pipe dimensions and various incompatible pipe metals, hard to get parts and chemicals, companies going out of business, snotty big name cooling service firms refusing to deal with small jobs, and so on and so on.

In the end it has taken about 8 month to get to the point where I finally have all the stuff and an engineer willing to do the job. Thaar from CN Kylservice is a really good cooling systems engineer, but he keeps complaining about there beeing no space to work! I can’t imagine why, the Journeyman is pretty roomy for a sailboat. I guess he is not used to sailboats ;-)
