    You need to be more clear on the question. Kind of is too vague. Fishing boats often fast freeze fish which then only need a well insulated hold. The cooling load, or frigories, depend largely on the outside temperature, whether you are cooling or freezing, size of hold, tonnage of cargo, etc.

    Yes, but you have to specify the load, insulation, etc.

    it should be anything , I just need to see an example of it . it could be any type of vessel and any type of insulation. When I look into cooling load calculation , it s always related to buildings . but as I said need to find about some vessel that could be any type. am I clear ?

    In another thread it sounded like you are a student. Are you at attending a university or other school?

    Start with the interior and exterior temperatures, the surface area of the box and the R value of the insulation.

    Sorry my friend I did not see the signboard that says ' Do not allawed to students'. My fault.

    Thank you friend , but isnt it fine that being more specific? I mean for example where I can find a designed fishing stockage box ? it would be more easy to find this values on a real place. am I right ?
