Ouch! No kidding!
Almost makes it worth running a Honda
2000 instead, depending on local gas prices!
Are you running A/Cs, or just charging
batteries? You didn't mention how much solar power you have. Personally, I'd prefer not to pay that much for electricity, but so many other factors enter in - like convenience of being in a slip vs anchored out, etc.
I'd love to be in a position that solar power augmented with a portable genny would be enough to keep the boat comfortable. Not an easy thing to do.
