Let’s just say there aren’t a lot of Fboat builders hanging around Sonoma County. Our hulls are tucked in the row of industrial park neighbors including the pressure washing equipment, kitchen remodelers, wood shops, motorcycle repair, etc. So the F-boat forum, and now perhaps this blog, are lifelines of sorts to help keep this F36 build on track.
Comments from experienced hands are more than welcomed. All systems need to be thought through – for example, in considering electric propulsion, do we put the focus on a large battery bank to minimize use of a fossil-fuel generator? What’s the right solar array and wind-turbine mounting system – lots of options…
The boat needs to support year-round living – think coastal Scotland foggy nights. How well does the combo cabin heat / water heater diesel unit work?
Are there tank meters for use on flexible bladder style water tanks? How will the Spectra watermaker do feeding that style of tank? etc. etc. etc.
Thanks for reading the miscellaneous ramblings.
