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: 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...
