What is cloudy weather?
It depends how much light comes through the clouds, between 10% and 50% of a sunny day I guess

thick dark clouds, i get 8-10 % of sunny weather with Victron panels. Always wondered what is Sunpower performance in such conditions but cant get quantifiable results on internet. Found some japanese panels that specialise in cloudy weather (different light wavelength) and difference is quite substantial in clouds, but less efficient in sunny.

I know the Lagoons are a great boat but I really want a modern interior look. I've been searching online everywhere for companies that do interior refits and can't find any in Australia. Does anyone have any suggestions?

This is the difference between the interiors. Can you paint the dark wood light?? Does all the wood have to come out?? Is there companies that do this?? Is there any cheap, easy, beautiful fixes.?
Thanks so much for any suggestions
Julie
Julie, hi, if you love the boat but just don't like the interior colours, even after living with it for a while then the panels and cabinets can be painted. There is no need to remove anything or pay exorbitant prices to a "marine specialist", just find the best panel beater in town, preferably someone that doe's high end work,(there should be some in Coffs) and speak to them about repainting the interior panels and cabinets in the colour of your choice. For the best results you need to sand all that has to be painted, undercoat with an epoxy undercoat and sand again and then topcoat with a good polyurethane in the colour you want. If you are prepared to do the bulk of the prep following the advice of the painter then it should not be too expensive for a truly great result. If you feel that sanding and other prep is beyond or beneath you then the costs will rise. Wonders can be worked with a simple paint job.
