New to sailing!

Me and my boyfriend plan on buying an 1985 etap 26 yacht within the next two weeks. I will be posting MANY questions on here so any info on our boat would be greatly appreciated in this thread. We have been doing weeks of research and the boat has been garage kept for the past 30 years. This boat is in FANTASTIC condition for its age. I have heard how hot it can get and was wondering if anyone knows of a good, but small, solar powered ac/fan and also good solar powered lights for the interior (mainly) and exterior of the boat. Thanks!

Re: New to sailing!

Welcome aboard! You might check this thread for some ideas of boat stuff. Luci Lights are good, and I really like the Warsun light shown in the thread. It's not solar but you can charge it off the battery and maybe you'll get a solar panel someday! Good luck!
