Re: Portable Genny
Maine-you live in Maine. I think you mostly cruise N.E. Think that has impact on your (quite educated) choices.
Ah yes where we get even less solar hours and where most boats reside only on moorings.....
I also design and install energy management systems for a living, and do so for world cruisers as well as coastal customers. Many of them, whom I do work for, do not choose to have gensets either in-board or portable and they don't need them. The do just fine with a well designed system even without a generator. I also have a number of customers who leave the fridge running 24/7 on the mooring. While they do have LVD's installed it is pretty rare that they actually trip off at 12.1V / low voltage.
