I am in the process of upgrading all of my electrical system.. To date I have 2 six vo;t Trojan T-105 batteries connected in series, a 120 Amp alternator, an extenal regulator, Heat fuse and regualtor, a Heart Link 10 Monitor, a 13 breaker panel with battery amp gauges,and an 8 breaker panel. Later this summer I am going to add a solar panel (120 Volt.) I am also rewiring all circuts. The batteries will provide 225 amps, they are inexpensive and do not weigh like a D4 or D8. The alternator and related equipment was expensive (1027) form Jack Rabbit marine. I sent a list to Sailnet but they did not get back to me in time.
It is a lot of $$ and work but will be worth it as I will be energy independant as I can be. I run an Alder Barbour Super Cold machine, 2 GPS, a JRC Radar, occasionally a 13" TV and sometimes a stereo.
