. Part of the planning will entail calculating the power consumption
needs, it does have a 6KW generator
for those days when both wind and sun are in short supply but I'd like to limit the amount of time the generator is used. We're gearing up to step off in a few years and although the boat carries 150 gallons of diesel
we would like to limit consumption to as little as possible to give us more latitude in our decidions.
The freezer box is quite well insulated and once everything is cooled down we usually only need to chill the cold plate once a day in the summer, I know it's not the tropics but the cooler stays cold on those 90 something days around here.
