I am looking to do something like the Swiss Tear did and put an AC in the lower part of the galley. I ran across one in a Pot Growers magazine called 420 that looks pretty promising.

He used metal 10 inch ducting to supply fresh air to the "middle" section of the AC unit and closed in both sides. His tests were pretty successful with the 10 inch ducts and no fan. His finding were that if you went with anything smaller than 10 inch duct you needed a fan to bring more air in. I know I cant have 10 inch ducts so would rely on a fan to pull in fresh air from the side and exhaust through the bottom. I know someone (maybe KC ..I cant remember I looked at so many) had to use a blower in the return from the tear to make his "DIY Climate Right" work. With the front of the AC in the tear that shouldn't be an issue. The issue then becomes keeping the outside 2/3's cool.
Pardon the crude Sketch Up drawing but my take on his plan would be something like this
I may build a box and play around with this before building into the teardrop.
