    Solar panel

    I have a solar panel that shows acceptable volts 17 plus but only half an amp when plugged into controller. Is this how solar panels die??
  8. Going sth to wellington initially and hopefully get down to stewart island
  9. Looks like the crew want to go down the West side of the North Island. My question is how far off Cape Reanga and North Cape should we be planning to be? Cruising mode not racing.
  10. We have a juice panel. Junction box on panel corroded after about 5 months use. We had to send our panel back to them they fixed it and sent it back. Was a pain to do but at least we eventually got a working panel again. I think its been up 7 months now and still working so fingers crossed.

    Stern lines

    Looking to cruise the fiords and sounds so the subject of running sternlines to the shore has come up. My query is how long and what size for a 42 ft yacht. Also do you just coil them up and hang them somewhere when not in use or is there a really efficient way to store them for easy deployment?
  12. So if I want to change my system around so that the cylinder is not inside the boat, is it ok to use that flexible plasticy rubbery stuff Burnsco has?
  13. Do I need to disconnect the solar panel if I need to run the battery charger? And yes yes I know with solar I wont need to run the charger but I did have to. Also a mate was told to disconnect his solar panel when he starts the engine. Any idea why that would be? We certainly dont. Am I doing it wrong?
  14. What if you dont have anything but a tagged lead plugged to a multiplug box?
  15. What sort of R value shd I be aiming for?
