I'm a solar and wind type sailor. I see use in both BUT I also have a honda genny. If I had an inboard generator I could start with a switch then I would probably not have a wind generator.
With all the great cruising areas to go in this world, who decides that going to a turd world country like Haiti is a good idea?
