Re: Small affordable sailboats with ample storage? (planning to live aboard)

Bljones, I hadn't considered the 12v charging situation! Thanks for pointing that out. I need some kind of complicated solution to charge batteries with an outboard at all, don't I? I don't plan on being away from the slip for more than 5-7 days tops, but would charging with shore power keep the batteries up for more than a day or two? I do love my gadgets, so power is important to me. I'm sure there are solar solutions, but I'd rather be able to start a motor and be sure the batteries were getting consistent juice.

Also, where can I find info about this boat you speak of? Do you have a for sale thread or CL ad somewhere?
