What do you use as a power source? I've read some interesting stuff on solar panels but I'm not sure if they'd work on a sailboat. Anyway, I'm curious what is out there to use or possibly even what combinations of power sources people are using?
We use Solar, and wind. I have also heard about a thing that you tow behing the boat. It is like a wind generator, but it works in water. As to the solar panels breaking, If you put them in a place where you aren't going to walk on then they will be fine, also they make flexible panels that you can walk on.
