Good looking install.
Nice be looking at this thread when I do my solar.
I have two 100 W panels on my Flowers 38 and am adding 2 more this year. I put them down with 4200. It lasted well and was easy enough to remove as I awlgripped everything above the rails this year. I built a box out of white foam and polyester resin and mat in the cockpit. Installed a Norcold air cooled unit which was very simple. Now there is always cold beer in my cockpit on the mooring. Unfortunately I cannot disclose that location.
Great install. I have a Solara 5560M43 panel and Genasun GV-10 MPPT Solar controller all ordered through Ocean Options. It's pricey but I will be able to step on it (I will try to avoid stepping) while loading paddle board etc on the roof. It should keep the new fridge cold all summer and top off the batteries.
Many of us have a good nose when it comes to sniffing out cold beer
Running the fridge. Meter on the right is solar generation.
Seems to be working OK.
just made $1.25 back in a month with solar power. If that was marina power it would be $400.
New/Old 1KVA Heart Inverter/Charger installed...good for vacuuming up after a visit.
Yeah but you Wasted it on that Lite Pilsner. Hell you could have got some Good beer like Old Mud, (Old Milwaukee) JK Looking good !
Nice job! Need a picture of a thermometer in the fridge to prove it works........or a picture of all the empty beer cans afterwards
