Looper’s Guide to your Electrical System

The Story

When we originally bought Pivot, our 1989 34’ Marine Trader, we had a crash course on how power works in a boat. Our batteries did not last even the first night of our maiden voyage. Considering we run a digital business from our boat, and we mainly stay on anchor, we needed to re-design our electrical system. Fast forward to today, we have 700 Watts of Solar, 600 Amp Hours of Lithium (LiFePO4) batteries, and an entire system of components to keep us charged without a worry! This e-book contains all that we’ve learned including how to set up your system to keep you fully charged on your Loop.

Cost Savings

There’s no question that quality marine electronics are expensive. In this 38-page e-book, we show how if you anchor more and design your system to stay charged, you can save tens of thousands of dollars on your Great Loop. Depending on your situation, it could pay for itself by the time you complete your loop.

For All Backgrounds

My background is in Computer Engineering, but you don’t need to be an engineer to understand this book. We start with the “Why” to find out our goals, go into the “What” so we all have a foundation, and then go into the “How” so we can all have a solid and safe electrical system.

Included Power Calculator

As you’ll find out when reading this book, we all have different electrical needs, and determining what those are is a crucial step in designing your system. The included “Power Calculator” spreadsheet is where you can get the exact numbers for your system.

One-Stop Shopping List

Some may implement this electrical setup yourselves, similar to what we did, while others want experts to work on systems like these. Our shopping list at the end of the e-book gives you our recommended set-up which you can send to your local marine electrician.

We hope you become more comfortable with your boat’s electrical system and save money on your loop! Thank you for your support ❤️

We will email you any future updates or changes to our spreadsheet, free of charge.
