I'm about to move out of the marina and will be cruising and probably on a swinging mooring eventually. I was thinking of getting a solar panel to supplement the alternator and to keep the batteries (180ah) topped up when not aboard. I think the most practical solution would be a panel on a wandering lead that I can position to best advantage when at anchor or on a mooring and which can either be stowed or tied to the top of the dinghy on deck or elsewhere as suits. I don't have anywhere that's not shadowed for some of the time. Trouble is, there seems to be a bewildering choice of type- though my requirements I think suggest a semi-flexible type with grommets in the corners- and of price and supplier. Some of the ones on ebay seem a bit dodgy to say the least. any advice chaps, on any of this gratefully received!
