So that's in salt water, correct?
I generally advise against an I/O on any boat that stays in the water all
the time, especially in salt water. It is really difficult to protect
against the corrosion of the outdrives and they can be very expensive to
replace a few years down the road.

I don't believe that the A/C would run off the batteries directly. It is
possible that they have an inverter that would run the A/C but unless the
battery bank is very large it just wouldn't be practical to use it that way.
If the boat doesn't have a generator then you will be limited to using it at
