my solar panels
have outlasted more than one boat so far, and i think none of mine are newer than 10 yrs age. perfect and working a s if they were just out of box new....
plastic kayaks and walker bay--have been used now for over 10 yrs..no problem....
so far, boat covers that were made prior to 2002 are stil lusable and in decent shape.
hydraulic, heavy duty---still awesome....not use much electricity, as it is hydraulic with elect assist....i am third owner using it, so far--also my weather
fax unit is still good since 2004....
was installed 2004, still good...
panel still sukks after 10 yrs of no change to it..no major changes happened to electrical
systems in 2500 or more miles travelled...
screens on all electronix die in sun--bring spares or make a really good heat pruf and sun pruf cover for them.
bubba is only 7 yrs old, now, so i cannot vouch for gato survivability, yet.....
have had FAIL from nav lites, anchor
lites, spreader lites, etc....normal wear and tear--found spares for emergency
use==pod lites in green and red from auto zone..lol...
FAIl from screens on gps

units were cheap--mebbe 15 yrs or so..
hoses do not last worth a damn--must buy then every coupla years
problems outlast the good stuff---ditch em ..lol
oh, yes--anchor chain...rodlmao--galvo died in la cruz, after only one month of anchoring
in rocky stuff....still in use, as long as it is intact. galvo doesnt do strength, only protection.
