Default Cheap fan for these hot days

It’s been so hot and windless that last few days. I’m wondering if anybody has a cheap misting fan or a regular fan that cuts the heat? I almost got sick on Monday because of how hot it was. I don’t mind wiring to an accessory switch or just using a lighter port. Not looking to spend a ton of money.
Any advice is appreciated!
TIA!!

I can comment that having a fan on board is a game changer for me. We are lucky and have a genny. I run the AC in the cabin and run a fan to blow the cool air out onto the crew -- mainly onto the captain of course. Makes the terrible hot days barely bearable. The fan I use is a Lasko 4900 got from Amazon for about 80 bucks. It moves a bunch of air.

I bet you could run a fan like this on an inverter for many hours.

I use a power inverter and a cheap box fan in my boat. Really helps move the air in my pilot house.

Squirrel cage fans are the bomb.
I use a Lasco.
