Very Nice boat!
Induction cooktops are great. We use ours every day, because we need to run the generator
anyway, so we just do our cooking
while the generator
runs. It's much easier than fussing with propane
or butane bottles, getting them filled and then worrying about gas, safety
Before you start adding expensive solar panels
, see how things work out first using the generator. Our home and business in Massachusetts
is 66% solar electric
.... and it's not all it's cracked up to be and promised. When you weight the price
of a few solar panels
and the small amount of electricity they'll produce for your boat against the cost of the few gallons of diesel
required to do the same using the genset... it will take many years for you to even out. You need to run the generator anyway in order to keep it healthy. Stick with the generator. you're better off trying to save electricity by switching over to LED light fixtures etc. Solar is great if you don't already have a power source, but you already have what others dream of having... the genset.
One more thing: Spend the money
you'll safe by not having solar panels
, on some very nice sturdy simple davits
... don't spoil the good looks of your boat by attaching a "jungle gym" to the stern. 10ft dinghy with a center console... the davits are going to need to be very strong with a well supported structure.
