Day Ten – Solar Array Installation

Tim turned up from Onboard Solar to fit our panels as arranged and it drizzled all morning – poor chap.

A very professional job – all panels placed on deck and aligned, holes drilled, marine sealant applied …

This is a 400 Watt array with the MPPT controller – all very neat:

Unfortunately, this was the weather!  Typical. Not good for Tim and not good for a demo of what the panels can do either. Still it had put 20 Ah’s back into the batteries, which was nice.

Still, the rain did stop and they look cool and fairly discreet too.

Time to return to Trent Bridge – a bit easier mooring.
