The idea of using two alternators is a pretty good one. It has several major benefits, provided you have the space to do it properly.
First, it provides an easy way to get the power without the cost of the custom machine work.
Second, it provides some redundancy—if one goes, the second will probably still work, albeit, providing a lower amount of charging.
I personally prefer solar, as there are no fuel costs associated with it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
