Re: Caribbean, What works and doesn't
Not all sailboat owners hate to burn diesel. I was aboard a 70 ft boat last year, with her full time Captain. He told me the generator runs 24/7, when the owner is aboard, which was really a comment on how reliable he found it. All home style systems available all the time for mommy and daddy.
Sounded ridiculous to me, although, this is quite common in the very large boat crowd. This sailboat carried 700 gallons of diesel!!
p.s. I asked around and learned the owner doesn't even know how to sail. His Captain was very loyal and didn't give him up.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
