    Hi Rock,

    As it so happens, we’re currently in the middle of our electric conversion on Revery. Also, Dan K converted his and Ewan (site admin) is converting using the same system I have. I’ll be starting a topic detailing everything in about a week, but I’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

    I will leave you with this thought. For us, who will be long distance cruising, electric would NOT have made sense if we didn’t already have an 8kW generator “just lying around”. Battery technology is just not there yet to support the kind of range we need (IMO), unless you want to spend $25K+ on LiFePo4 batteries.
