Solar Installation

Solar update:

The system performs far beyond our expectations. One of the best choices we have made on Ebbtide. Making ice on the hook in silence is amazing. We actually have a surplus unless the blender and ice maker are running at the same time. Good times!

Our boat has one too, but it's the height of 80's cheesiness. Low Rider is much cooler.

I really like what you have done with your boat - personally I have always appreciated classic boats without a flybridge, but my wife loves ours so that's how we roll.

My family and I will be at the Pt Townsend Wooden Boat Show - but we will be aboard a tallship......

Cheers.

Low Rider "Ebbtide" looks awesome. I'm sure she will be an attraction at Port Townsend WBS. Nothing like a display of your boat to the public to motivate...

What heating systems do you have Bob? Getting colder the next few nights. It looks like a quiet day in Anacortes.
