Rick, looks like we are using the same panel. Nice. Lots of assembly required.

Love the diagram, can you do one for me

One observation. You have no fuses at the batts or alternator or have they just been left off the diag.

I think I fused after the main buss's. Will correct that. Re-evaluating the entire system in light of our decision to go diesel/electric propulsion. That'll change pretty much the entire electrical landscape! *sigh* Back two steps again!

Won't that substantially change the costs involved? Also, I was reading there was a problem with the OSSA system as it apparently wasn't suitable for continuous use. My recollection is a bit fuzzy on this one as I figure it is a bit too soon for me to seriously think about this.

Crunching the numbers now but it appears it'll be about $5K more than a conventional diesel direct drive.

And really, what is $5K to a man of your means?

Is that just for the generator or the generator and the electric drive unit?

No that's over and above the cost of a conventional diesel direct drive for the boat.
