You no longer need a genny for marine air conditioning. I brought this up to the northern lights dealer last week at the boat show. There are currently three major boat manufactures selling boats with dc systems that run solely off the battery bank. Average energy consumption is between 250 and 400 watts an hour for 16k btu. Depending what you use the genny for though its probably worth fixing. That unit weighs less than a set of 8ds and gives you the most options. Inverters, chargers, solar and lithium batteries combined with the new dc systems look to be the future solution but the price is still pretty high for consideration in a retrofit.
