Going solar…

DSCF4838It is time to harvest some free power. We installed one of the 3 solar panels that we purchased at the Toronto Boat Show.

The first panel is on top of the dodger and the other two will go on top of the bimini. Each panel is secured with industrial strength 3M Velcro. They are connected in series as recommended by the manufacturer.DSCF4850

And we are right! After a maximum of 3 days without power during our sailing vacation around the Lake Ontario our batteries were charged and we are very happy!
