Yup! worked fine when the condenser was clean but soon fell away, had it on one ship that was going into dry dock in Bahrain the company wanted us to live on board during the docking, asked us how much shoreside steam would be required and could not believe the answer. Ended up being bused to and from an airconditioned hotel after two days on board without A/C
