However if you are so time constrained then you chose the wrong type of boat.
Sailboats have no schedule.
Well, in the world in which I live I unfortunately don't have control over the wind (or too often lack thereof) and I do at times have a schedule to keep. But if as a result I have to motor
say 20% of the time then I don't for a moment think I have the wrong type of boat.
In fact, in choosing my boat light air performance was a major consideration. We have SA/Disp of 25 which to most people places us towards the performance end of the cruising boat spectrum. We see plenty of people motoring when we're sailing.
I'd simply like to capture more of the possible amp hours from that 20% of the time spent motoring. Hence more battery capacity is in the works.
