Spent 4 years building the boat, 44' catamaran
Bob Oram design, we've now lived aboard for nearly two. We cruise
, avoid marinas
99% of the time.
We have 600 Watts solar
, MPPT regulator
, which usually (when it's sunny) provides ample power
to run the fridge, freezer
, all lights/pumps etc, as well as on alternate days, the watermaker
and the breadmaker. If it's not sunny we have a 1kva invertor genset, and 60 amps battery charging
We carry a small twin-tub washing
We have a smallish TV we rarely watch, if we want to watch a DVD
we'll usually watch on the laptop
Regularly go 2+ months at a time without viviting "civilization".
We have mobile broadband
