I'm setting up a 40 foot boat for cruising the great lakes
, east coast
and on to the Bahamas
. The boat has a 400 watt AirX marine wind generator
. We intend to stay out of the marinas
as much as possible. I have a few questions:
Is the air x any good? It came with the boat. Should I replace it?
I have a small 2000 watt propane generator
I use to power tools to work on the boat as it is on the hard
. I'm thinking of using it as a backup power source when the time comes when we leave something on all night and drain all batteries. (hey.. we're new at this , it's going to happen)
I would not hook it up permanently just stow it and dig it out when needed. I'd run it on the deck
off our propane
supply for our stove and BBQ.
Next question, It's not going to like the salt
and humidity, Anyone know how best to protect it?
