"Sea Power" (a DC alternator mounted on your propulsion engine) was/is manufactured by MEPS.
CEO Bill Chambers (972-864-1015) is very helpful.

I don't have any specific "sea power" knowledge, but have worked with several "road power" units. I'd say a good 80-90% of the problems we've had have been with the inverter or the connections to the inverter.
