    Sailnet is not as active a forum as this one and the moderation is not as heavy-handed. That being said, I find the content on this forum to be more interesting in general than that that on SailNet. But maybe that's just because there is more content here. And don't get me wrong, the mods can be pretty douchey over there too.

    Once, after a particularly irritating disagreement with a mod here (that earned me my first "infraction"), I took a 6 month leave of absence from CF. I had intended not to come back at all, but in the end, I did. There's more good than bad here and there's always Sailing Anarchy if you need to mix it up with people without being hassled about it.

    You seem willing to discuss various aspects of electric propulsion. I don't wish to monopolize your time. I just don't know where to go from here.

    How much gasoline do you carry and how do you carry it? Isn't diesel safer? That is my main concern - that it is explosive. I can isolate a one gallon tank for the dingy but many gallons sloshing about in a large tank spooks me. I changed 90 gallons of gasoline in bilge tanks to diesel and felt very much better when cooking dinner.

    Are you saying a diesel generator would be more susceptible to rusting out than a gasoline generator? If I didn't need or want refrigeration or other high use electrical devices, how low of wattage would you think I'd need to push the boat at a reasonable speed, say 4 knots continuous? ...and batteries.
