PKYS and Victron Equipment

I just want to give a huge recommendation to Peter Kennedy at PKYS for his help in selecting the correct equipment for a near full electrical upgrade on Palarran. He was very patient and THOROUGH in reviewing my wiring diagram and making sure the equipment I purchased was the best solution for my application.

Items we selected where a new Victron 3000 watt inverter/charger, three MPPT controllers, Victron battery monitor, Victron graphic controller, and all the fuses for installing the equipment and 1325 watts of solar.

Great vendor. I bought most of my gear for our electrical upgrade from them. Great service and no hassle returns.

Cheers, RickG

Sounds like a nice refit. Do you get to the Caribbean? Say hi to Roxy.

Ditto from me. He is my primary Victron supplier (among other things). Very responsive and knowledgable.

Re: PKYS and Victron Equipment

I will add one more endorsement for PKYS. Not only bought a lot of Victron gear from him but also gave me a great deal and some help with a new Garmin radar.

I get the PK, what is the YS (yacht systems?) you all seem to know, but I don't know where he is located. Bahamas?
