Info needed for solar system on my boat

I want to install a solar system on my 26 foot sailboat but I don't know where to begin.  There seem to be so many different kinds of solar panels out there that I don't know which would best suit me.  I need them to charge and maintain my 12volt batteries which run my lights, instruments, stereo and eventually small appliances.  Any information would be very appreciated.

I would be glad to help you.  Depending on the size, number of batteries and time between usage you can get a small system and perhaps a combination wind/solar package to help you charge your batteries.

send me an email and we can discuss.

Re: Info needed for solar system on my boat

the types that you should be looking into are unbreakable and marine type modules. These will better handle the elements at sea. If all you are running is 12 volt appliances on your boat then installation will only require one or two panels and a properly sized controller hooked up to your deep cycle battery...
