Kudos my friend, you stuck it out way longer than most would have.
I'm very glad you posted this as I think it will be eye opening to some people. Even though the simple math shows that electric
cannot equal diesel
, some people need to see a real life application. What stood out to me was the "50km long trip". You have a very nice well thought out setup, but 50km is only 26 nautical miles, or a 1/4 the typical daily range of a diesel
. Your setup is probably double what a standard monohull
could fit for panels
. Not to mention no ocean swells to contend with. Makes me want to cry for a certain vlog that is trying to repower
However, I do have a question. It looks like you may be the perfect candidate for a Tesla powerwall. Have you considered this?
