Gone Green

Hello,
I am starting to build a fully solar powered house boat.

Here is a list of some of the systems I will be putting into this build.

  • 2 48Vdc 2K watt solar panel arrays.
  • 1 24Vdc 1K watt solar panel array.
  • 2 48Vdc high power golf cart motoers and control systems.
  • 2 48Vdc 2K Amphr Lithium Ion Battery Banks.
  • 1 24Vdc 300 Amphr Lithium Ion Battery Bank.
  • 100 Gallon fresh water tank
  • 60 Gallon gray tank
  • 60 Gallon black tank
  • All lights will be LED.
  • There will also be a 3 zone spit A/C system with heat pump.
  • Salt water desalination and filtraion system.
  • 96NM radar and gps cartploter/autopilot.
  • Sonar/ fish finder
My Hull is going to be shaped like that of a Jon boat to store batteries, drivetrain, tanks, and other storage as needed.

I am getting ready to lay the first boards of the hull.

I will post updates as I get time.

Happy New Year Richard.

I loved reading about your solar powered house boat plans and would love to hear how you are getting on and I’m sure others would too.

That is why, I’d like to introduce you to the new, Wood Boat Net.

It is designed to make it easier to for you to tell us more about your Wooden Boat, to upload photos etc, put you in control of your content and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask/answer any questions you about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.

So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters, we’d love to hear from you.

Cheers,

Mike

Return to Wooden Boat Projects...

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
