The W&S600 is definitely producing more power then the W&S 300 - I use the 600 with the bigger propeller
- at 6 knots I'm ending up at maybe 450 watts. It depends on the cable length and the size of the cable which is going to the battery
. On Lifgun the hierarchy is as follows (during cruising) : 1. Watt and Sea - 2. Generator
- 3. Engine
. Imagine opposite the solar you'll produce 7/24. In my case I put the hydro down when leaving the port and take it up at arriving....
I used it now for over 15K nautical miles and beside some problems with the support and the cable plug
(which was placed on a stupid spot from my side) no serious issues happened. In the meantime I reinforced the hinges and the support (out of carbon fiber). Since then everything works fine. The black bock stops loading the battery
as soon as she is fully loaded - the black box is producing quite a bit of heat...so don't mount her in a narrow spot....
