Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Bob- Live in New England but still get my electricity from panels on the roof and hot water from two surprisingly small panels. The water in those panels gives us domestic hot water and pre heats the forced hot water heating system. Get a check from the power companies every 3m. Did it when there were all sorts of tax incentives but even now as prices have come down and efficiency up the pay back is a very short time.
