Goin' back.

I'm sorry to say that I'm returning to the dark side:  diesel.  I have found that my sailing has changed from using the motor to get away from the docks and hoisting the sails to long periods of motoring.  I recently retired and now, rather than day-sailing and weekends, my wife and I are spending longer trips here along the Gulf Coast.  That means awaiting weather windows for open water sailing or motoring along the ICW.  The electric was fine for shorter trips when I motored less or could use…See More

Oceanvolt references

I am looking at buying 2 SD15 KW saildrives, 8 LiFePO4 batteries, 2 14KW DC Diesel Gensets and a solar charger/controller from Oceanvolt. They provided several references of people who had their systems in catamarans so I contacted all of them. Every one had a good story to tell! Sure there were a few problems, but the owners all said that Oceanvolt support was impressive. Does anyone in this group have a history with Oceanvolt?See More
