Re: Ready

Nice looking boat!! And I see you have radar too. Very nice.

Anything special in the electrical department? What kind of amp-hours does she store? Using LEDs at all?

Brad

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

The Radar / Plotter is linked to a LED TV scree inside the cabin and and a small repeater screen for the cockpit. She has a 560 A/h house batterie a 130A/h for the engine and another 130 lives in the v berth for the bow thruster. 2 50 Watt semi flexible solar panels keep that lot topped up and on the engine I have 2 x 90 amp alternators to charge while running with artificial wind. For the electrical tools I run on board, like my metal lathe / mill or welding equipment, I have a 3600 watt inverter. I must admit, that I don't have as much living space on Tiki as most 35' boats have, but she is a floating machine shop and with the tools I have on board, I could build another boat ...just need the material.
