Folks, I have moved a thread down here in the proper section on behalf of a poster vbKlower. Sorry for the inconveniance, but it woudl have gotten lost where it was.
Good day to all, I am looking for practical and inexpensive solutions for DC power production aboard my small sloop
that is used for overnighters and quick two to four day getaways. I have four solar panels
and a wind generator
with charge controllers on my larger Catalina
. This is an older English sloop
that I have toyed with in my spare time. Its funky and odd ( much like me!) and I have been refitting it on a shoe string. I have converted from an inboard to an outboard
on a bracket and have rewired completely both the AC and 12 volt system. My 12 volt system is no longer the positive ground original system but a 2 bank system with a proper breaker panel and dedicated charger
. I have the entire engine
compartment available for component placement and am open to any idea that sounds cheap
and fun. Thanks in advance for any advice.
