Re: Building a A/C Powered Boat

AC guys typically run a shroud or heat extractor - different designs produce different results. Here are a few examples with the first photo being the most efficient at dropping cylinder temps. :thumbleft: shroud.PNG shroud_3.jpeg https://southernairboat.com/photopost/data/500/medium/2012-05-02_16-0...
