Sail drive option for electric motor install

I am looking for affordable sail drive installation for my catamaran to connect to my electric motors. I am looking for these as an easier option to installing a traditional propeller shaft, struts, packing box, etc.  Anyone know of a good source to purchase to purchase two sail drives and use a verticle attachment for my electric motors? (AC-46's).DaveSee More

100 Watt Renogy bendable solar panels

I just bought  a Renogy 100 watt bendable panel to add  to my 12 volt house solar array. At four pounds it is four times lighter and smaller than the 75 watt Siemens panels I bought over a decade ago. Not sure if they will hold up as well and I'd be leery to walk on it. But, I'm impressed with it so far. Gave a nice bump up in energy collection and easily movable compared to the rigid panels.:…See More
