Actively cruising in California, plenty of projects along the way, but each system is functioning well.
Last plugged in to dock power March 10, 2022 – otherwise completely solar charged.
Bikes on board Ayala, tied to the table in the salon, cruising easily when it’s just the two of us under way. More challenges come in when hosting friends, but still worth it! Completed solar charged since March 2020.
Mileage (since 11/24/2019): 5,383.1 (Nora) and 4,374.0 (Charles)
As we test our storage constraints and cruising needs, we left The Friendmaker behind for now. We will still find a way to make friends.
Just over 1kw of solar is installed and functioning on Ayala.
Consistent testing since March 2022 indicates that this is sufficient to keep up with our propulsion (electric inboard motor), cooking (induction cooktop and convection oven), navigational & safety equipment, dinghy motor and ebike battery charging, and other 120v inversion needs.
