For many years now I have had a small solar panel,mounted on my sliding hatch-it charges two 80 AH deep cycling batteries.Again no engine charger.
It quite happily keeps batteries topped up for weekend sailing and powers up a small bilge pump which the wooden sixty five year old boat needs.In fact one of the batteries deserves an award-its well over 10 years old!
