The plan is pretty simple : a $300 cheapo compact petrol inverter generator from feebay and a used small portable air con unit for around $50, with wheels and tank removed, installed under the sink. As the cabin is currently keeping me warm here in Aus in the winter months, i will wait until the warmer months to complete this part of the project. however i have allowed the required space for both units, venting and wiring.. About 20 kg of the 60kg dummy ballast will be replaced by the a/c unit.Around 20 will be removed for the water tank, and around 20kg will stay mid craft to help balance the rest.
All up the generator will serve as:
-Main ac power supply
-A battery charging unit for the main and auz battery
-A 3rd backup should the main outboard fail and the batteries go flat (required for backup trolling engine)
-An aux power supply for on board items, laptop chargers, ect
-More rear ballast
More details and pics when i get closer to the time.
