Question How do I calculate my power needs?

I am thrilled to say that I have just bought (& now live on) my first liveaboard!!!!

I was just about to start looking for a solar panel kit and then realised I have no idea how much I actually need.

I live in the UK with 'limited' sunshine shall we say, albeit I do not need to power a great deal...

12v coffee maker (once a day 15mins)
iPad mini (1 full charge a day)
2-3hours of light per day (12v fluorescent tubes)
Small 12v Bluetooth speaker 2-3 hours per day
Charge mobile phone 1charge per day

That's about it.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
