Yes the boat has an amp meter. I tried to isolate each potential draw on the system and then factor in maximum usage on a 24 hour day. So for instance on auto pilot if it is working hard it was 5 to 6 amps x 24 hours. My goal is to set the boat up for offshore / coastal cruising and not have a generator aboard.
