Re: Projecting a Movie onto a Sail

Josh,

We have attended parties like this. It was on a large cat using an older bulb type projector back in 07. Used a lot of Ah! But was FUN! Other boats pulled along side in dinks.

Re: Refrigerator Box Design

Sounds like you have a plan. Reducing the box will help a lot.
I would suggest that with the current low cost for solar panels, you might consider adding another 200 Watt instead of just 100 more. ...

Re: Refrigerator Box Design

Denise,

I think it may be because that although the project may not be all that big, the impact on life aboard in remote places IS impacted that much by it.

Re: Refrigerator Box Design

Re: Refrigerator Box Design

That was sort of my question.
If the outside air temp is low, then the compressor does not need to run as much. If super insulation is use, that to will cut down on run time. BUT, is $2K+ worth of...

Re: Refrigerator Box Design

That, 12 to 15 Ah usage, is VERY impressive!!!

What is the outside ambient temps when you got that type of power usage? What is the measured Ah draw of the system when running?

Re: Refrigerator Box Design

All of the holding plate systems that we saw as we cruised (for about 5 years) were engine driven. So, if you did not start the engine every couple of days, the system would quit. So we would have...

Re: Refrigerator Box Design

One of the problems that we saw with holding plate systems is the attention they require over what the Engel unit needs. At one point we had an emergency back home that required us to fly back ASAP....

Check out the Engel units. You can not build a unit that uses less power and still works!
