Bob...a permanently installed generator is your best bet for getting 150ah's reliably. We AVERAGED 100amps a day w/ 160w solar and a 4 winds wind generator. If you have a lot more room for solar panels than I did, you might be able to cover you needs...but you still won't be able to run the AC or heat the hot water etc. like you can with a generator.
If you are only going cruising for a year or so...then neither the passive systems or a built in generator make a whole lot of monetary sense and something like a Honda 2000 portable gen makes more sense. It takes time to get a payback on the big systems!
