Killarney Sailor thanks for your input. Our initial plan is to sail down to Mexico and keep the boat there 1 to 2 years and then depending on circumstances potentially go through the canal to Caribbean or take jump over to French Polynesia. Either way the idea is to be self sufficient using solar power and conservative energy usage to enjoy time on the boat. The way the Beneteau 46 is set up with the beamy aft cockpit we can have a tower built above our existing bimini top that could support and house 4 135watt panels with pretty good unobstructive positioning to the sun. That so far is the plan. Your comments are very useful and any other input appreciated
