    Refrigerant pipe insulation size?

    Yes. Unless you completely fill up the condenser and receiver. If that happens, the discharge pressure will go crazy high and then your condenser will explode and then your boat will sink.

    I don't know, but I'd think with R410A, the head pressure necessary to make that work would probably cause the indoor unit to explode. Don't think you'd want to be inside when that happens.
