Gen Set Min. Size ?
When I installed an interior in our boat , at a mooring, I installed a 4KW OHNO.
It worked but with no cruising use for it , today I believe the battery powered tools would do as good a job.
They could be charged at home , or for the amount of actual drilling , cutting et all, the 85W solar could charge them easily.
This is because the tools are seldom (if ever ) used on a cont basis, drill a hole , cut some wood , sand for a better fit , min not hours of use.
The 1500W --$200 inverter could handle any tools that require more power than a 18V batt., like a few min of plainer time.
