Balmar or mastervolt alternator

Has anyone added either a balmar or mastervolt alternator to their engine? As a second to charge batteries fast?

I'm thinking of adding one and before ordering (I'm in Fiji so it's an incredible rigmarole to receive parts and the freight is very expensive) . What results gave people seen? How easy would it be to add to a Volvo Penta 75 Hp ?

Re: Balmar or mastervolt alternator

Ill throw in a quick reply. Since you are at a remote location I would give priority to the past quality of the customer service of the provider. We have few threads here about very disappointing experiences (sorry cant remember details ) and I just hate that sort of occurrances more than anything.
