I made a start at wiring the electrics for ‘Minnow’. The solar panel and the 12 volt Lucas XV Supreme 86 AH Deep Cycle Battery are now linked via a control box which regulates charging. As soon as an opportunity arises for testing the solar panel in bright sunshine, I’ll give it a go.
The next task will be fitting and wiring a Nikkai L94AW 4-Way Cigarette Socket Adaptor to accommodate my GPS units etc. I would also like to install my Autohelm 800, and I may fit an all-round white navigation-cum anchor light. The less electric gizmos there are the better, because less wiring is required and less electricity is taken from the battery.
