Re: Who's Going and Where

Melissa and I plan to be there and bring our AmpEater. I have not reserved a cabin as we may be staying with relatives close by. Would like to hitch a ride with someone on Friday's river run.

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

Finally unpacked the Aquatron from winter storage. the batteries are topping off nicely. I hope to put in for the first time this year Saturday at the 1376 acre Dillon Lake reservoir. Solar panels may have to wait till this fall.

Re: Anybody ever set up solar power on their boat? Any ideas what would be needed?

Thinking about solar? What is your daily load in kilo-watt-hours? Lets say you have 2- 100 watt solar panels. On a clear summers day let us assume you will have 8 hours of good sunlight and you are optimistically able to produce an average of 80 percent of peak power over that period. 200 watts x 80...

Welcome fire01 from Ohio,

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

All USPS members get the magazine. The heading on the Ensign home page rotates between the feature articles.
A lot of people are definitely going to see the Amp Eater.

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

The Aquatron Amp Eater is in the spotlight. See my article that was published in the United States Power Squadron publication "The Ensign." I wrote the article last fall for our local Columbus Power Squadron newsletter "Galley Gossip." The National Organization picked it up to runin the fall edition...

Re: 2018 Report

We had a great time at G-12 this year. We even had Peter and Sara come halfway around the world to ride in the Aquatron. SaraAndPeterAquatron2.jpg Monday morning just after sunrise Melissa and I prepared for one last cruise before we packed up to return to Columbus. The Hales Bar Dock was extremely ...

Wayne, Yes. the gray strip is a the metal tag they gave me at the Division of Watercraft with the Hull Identification Number. Also have one inside the boat in a less obvious place. That tag has been on the boat since it's first launch. The Milfoil can have strands several feet long and can be tough ...

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

G-12 was a great success. the Aquatron gave several rides and made the trip to the dam. It was a 2-1/2 hour round trip fro the Aquatron due to strong current and milfoil wrapping on the prop, but all in all, a pleasant trip.
