I am seriously considering installing a Whispergen in my new sailboat. The DC buffer and inverter method of electrical management seems ideally suited to its 750 Watt/hour output and my needs. Being able to automatically replace up to 18 kW per day is well in excess of any forseen electrical use short of offering to do laundry for the entire anchorage, while I microwave a hip of beef. And its heat output will be well-suited to my mostly non-tropical cruising plans. Since I am planning on installing a diesel-fired hydronic heating system, the Whispergen will eliminate my need for a furnace. Thoughts...?
