Pictures or sketches would help a lot. Even a deck
I'm assuming you've done the math on the batteries
required for overnight and panel weight.
Yes, there are people who cant panels, but if the boat
swings much at anchor
(trimarans with a bridle
are generally very quiet) with the wind
, the direction will be wrong. If you go through the math, it does not have to be wrong by much before all that was gained is lost
I you want to try solar
for AC, I would take a very serious look at increasing insulation
, specifically on the roof. Look for small drafts and leaks
, just as though you were heating
in arctic conditions. There is a triple benefit for every BTU you can save. Also awnings over the windows and the cabin
I would also look at multiple AC units; you may have enough power to run only one at times, for example, the sleeping cabins.
Personally, I would look at 115V or 230V AC. The units are generally better engineered and much cheaper, more than offsetting the power conversion. They will also work
better in marinas
