theoceanaire is on a distinguished road
Many thanks for all the kind workds. As to energy consumption, here goes: 17 batteries, 18kw Northern Lights diesel. We anchor most of the way from NYC to points south. We are conservative underway. Generator runs every two days for about 3 hours. TV's are all 12V, except main salon. Serious cruising stuff: 35 gph watermaker, running backstays, full electronics, sat phone, 300 gals fuel 300 gals water, no moving parts toilets (headhunters use a 12v pump to do the dirty work), two large propane tanks in dedicated locker, dual refrigerator/freezer system (engine and electric) etc, etc. Most important: lots of storage, including a dedicated space for 180 bottles of wine and spirits.
