Re: Inverter for hot water tank
OK - maybe I was not clear enough - sorry.
1 - it is a raw water cooled Yanmar 2QM20 engine so the water does not get very hot
2 - I do not want to use this while at anchor to heat the water
3 - I was only curious about using it while under way by power (we do get days when we have to motor - not wind or wind in the wrong direction) I though if it was viable we could have hotter water when we got to the anchorage to have our showers.
I do not want to install a heat exchanger because of the cost.
