Re: Solar panels

Look on e-bay and find the best bargain in a solar kit. Try to find a MPPT controller if you can. I would suggest going to 4-6v golf cart batteries, 2 each in series for your 12v output.

Re: Surveyor recommendation

I would recommend that you find one on the BOAT US list: https://www.boatus.com/insurance/survey.asp
They list competent surveyors since they also insure boats.

Re: Weight and dimension of Hardtop

Take a look at this option. We put one on our present boat and love it. You can't walk on it, but it's a great way to replace a canvas bimini. http://www.hardtotop.com/

Re: Galley sink saltwater faucet

We had a factory installed unit in Second Wind. It was connected through the A/C cooling hose and used only a foot pump.

Re: Where does head hose connect to holding tank?

Re: Emergency Tiller

Sam, There was one on SecondWind. If you contact Don he might be willing to show it to you if he still has it. It was nothing but a piece of bent pipe with a slit in the end. He's on this forum.
