In Topic: Boats designed for solar?

22 May 2010 - 06:36 PM

Solar panels are expensive, and for the sailing that 98% of sailors do, are not that useful. (see the layout thread). 98% of sailors spend weekends cruising from anchorages/marinas/docks etc. and do a 2 week vacation. They don't really need solar panels because they are usually using the engine enough to charge the batteries. So manufacturers don't supply them or have a place to fit them.

what about the people that live on their boat? wind generators are nice but most of them are loud and expensive.

i love sperry's Amphibious Lace. I'm always on the bow and have never had trouble with them.
