Oops Tex. I missed that part. Thanks so much for catching it. I did update the article. http://janice142.com/Articles/Moby-CoolInstalled.html
For your convenience here is what I said:
First the picture:
On hand I had another piece of teak the width of the Moby-Cool approximately 1" by 1/2". That was used as a backing plate. (blue arrow)
Four screws (green arrows) hold the air conditioner in place. They go through the cover, teak backing plate and then into the air conditioner.
Still I was concerned that in rough seas the a/c might bounce back. Thus I used a piece of aluminum angle iron ("L" bracket) as a brace to prevent the a/c from moving aft. It is wedged in and won't wiggle.
When the Haier finally gives up the ghost I'll simply remove the four screws, lift up and pull aft. Replacement will be easy with another similar unit. Because Edwin wired in an outlet swapping air-conditioners could not be simpler.
Truly I am blessed.
P.S. - Thanks again for pointing out I missed the most obvious thing. That's very helpful.
