- Percy only has 2 batteries
- We only need to run the engine for battery charging now - not for hot water as was the case on Waterlily
Why do I feel guilty.... well it is tech in a very basic but well engineered install. I am sure Tony would not approve but we tend to use our boats as a floating retreat as we both work full time so don't get the chance to cruise the system yet. So how the batteries are is quite critical to us.
The install is in 15mm copper tubing to keep it looking the same as other electrical installs in this space. Next job is to complete the solar panel install into copper and hard fix the controller - more drilling and tapping the steel bulkheads...!!
