John,

This is an update on the charge/discharge current invert issue we talked about last week. I figured out what the problem is, thanks to you. I had the START battery connected to load side of shunt as you indicate could be the problem. I connected both the START & HOUSE to battery side of shunt. No more negative amp issue. It shows exactly positive amps going in and negative going out. Thank you for the help, I truly appreciate it.

This is one reason I keep coming back to eMarine for product purchase is because of your customer service. Top notch as far as I am concern. Keep up the good work and I will be back for an inverter purchase once in Ft. Lauderdale.

Thanks again for your help and follow through. Take care.

Hi Dianne,

I appreciate your assistance with the purchase and thanks for chatting with me and having a laugh or three.

I judge my opinion more on personalities and service than product, mostly. Not that I will be happy with boomarang shaped blades with 7 lbs difference in wt but it was fun talking with you. You have a pretty laugh.

If you ever want to see some cool things at the space center with your family let me know. I can hook you up with my brother that spent 20 years there. Really ! His wife too. They would prob make you come to dinner though.

Regards,

Hello eMarine,

I have benefited a lot from your solar site since I started messing with solar, so I wanted to say thanks for the info.

A few years ago I had to decide how much solar I needed on my boat. I ultimately decided on just a small 20 watt panel, which has worked out great for me.

I write a popular sailing blog for Southern California sailors. I just recently put together a page that helps other sailors decide on how much solar power they will need for their sailboat.

Here’s the solar page I put together: http://www.captaincurran.com/2015/09/how-much-solar-power-do-i-need-for-my-boat.html

Thanks for your consideration!

Hi E-Marine,

2 Kyocera 140 Watt panels with a BlueSky system

Just wanted to say thanks for your help and awesome customer service. I have bought and installed 4 solar systems for myself and friends on our boats.

I have included a few pictures of my installation. I used 2 Kyocera 140 Watt panels with a BlueSky system. I stacked them on my davits, the bottom one being fixed and “tiltable” on the bottom 1” stainless tube.

2 Kyocera 140 Watt panels with a BlueSky systemThe top panel is mounted on 2 screw on rails that I deploy when at anchor and push out the panel to allow for full exposure. I am modifying this a bit a moving the top panel closer to the bottom so that it doesn’t shade it as much.

Cheers and thanks

Andre

Jeremy,

We're all set up & the solar system works like a charm. Even slightly tilted aft, away from the sun, and on light, cloudy days, our four type 31 batteries charge properly.

Thanks for your good service!

Headed to FL, by boat, this week. Maybe we'll stop in and say hello

I spoke with Diane @3:30 on a recent Friday indicating that I needed an Aqualine regulator the following day. She personally retrieved the regulator, oversaw its shipping and it arrive the following day by noon.

I swapped it out for the failed regulator and had the voltage set to the proper bulk charging voltage by 3 that day.

Excellent, timely service. I will certainly order from you in the future. Please feel free to use this email in your promotional media.

Bob,

Paul T here, want to say thanks for all the help. The solar is working amazingly, went in like a charm and worked out perfectly. We will be in in a couple weeks to pick up the wind turbine blades, hopefully you will have put a set aside for us and most likely grab the magnum.

I found the other sheet of plastic I thought I had lost, under the hard solar panels, so if ok ill bring that back as well. As soon as possible ill do the survey, I couldn't be happyier.

Thanks again and look forward to seeing you most likely in 3 weeks, hope that works

Jeremy,

Thanks for your professionalism. Even though I could possibly have saved a little bit on piecemealing the order around the country, you gave me such a feeling of confidence in your company that I placed the order with you.

When you get a chance, if you have not already done it, please email me a paid invoice for my taxes.

Thanks

You might be interested in this: I mounted two of your Shine 100-watt semi-flexible solar panels on my new HardToTop hard-top dodger.

I mounted the panels with 3M "Extreme" outdoor mounting tape, all around the edges. I cut channels in the extruded-aluminum front edge for the cables from the solar panels, mounted the MC-4 connectors on the dodger frame, and pulled my own wiring through the frame - I think it's a pretty slick installation.

The hard-top is made of an extruded cellular polycarbonate plastic. I'm sure it will be stiff enough to keep the panels from flexing. And I've added 200 watts of solar energy to my charging system, which will be ample to power my autopilot while under sail.

Thanks for providing such economical, high-power solar cells!

Bob,

I’ve been meaning to write for about 8 months. We bought the Silent Wind kit from you last summer.

We installed it while on a mooring in Port Washington NY and the kit was perfect. All the parts were there, easy to understand direction, we cut the supports to fit and everything worked out great (we hardly lost any tools overboard too).

We live aboard and the master is aft cabin, so I was concerned about the noise - this is unbelievably quiet.

We are at National Harbor outside of DC now.

Just wanted to say thank you

Dave.

Hi Bob,

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner but I have been traveling. I wanted to give you an update on the solar panels that we have installed on the Passports. We have done two now and will be doing a third in a couple of months.

The first installation was on an aft cockpit Passport Vista 545. We put two Shine 135W and two Shine 50W panels on this boat all connected in series. I have enclosed a few pictures of the installation which was done atop a custom made bimini frame with canvas top attached. The panels have sewn zippers on each side with corresponding zippers sewn onto the bimini top, so they can be easily removed. The wires ran down one leg of the frame to an Outback controller. We have tested this boat extensively both in New England and in the tropics. This boat was built as an energy efficient boat with all LED lights, DC Frigiboat refrigeration and a DC 400gpd Spectra water maker among other energy efficient features. I am please to inform you that the solar panels run the entire boat quite nicely with the exception of the air conditioning which of course is AC voltage. This boat has four 8D batteries and three GP31 batteries. Even on passages when all the instruments and autopilot are running the panels seem to be able to keep up with things. This owner likes to sail his boat rather than motor or motor sail and he runs the water maker once every other day. Still with all of those things seem to work well and the batteries stay well into a usable range for days.

The second boat we did was a Passport 545 center cockpit. That boat had two Shine 135W panels also atop the bimini but were connected in parallel because of their location. This boat also has a D400 wind generator where as the aft cockpit has no wind power. This boat too seems to be self sufficient although doesn't have the longevity between charges from another source as the aft cockpit does. But it is still quite respectable in its power generation.

We are continuing to offer solar and wind power to our clients, most of which are offshore sailors. I'd enjoy any thoughts or input that you have to offer. And I'd be happy to write any testimonials that you might like.

All the Best,

Thom W

I want to thank you for your help. I was able to install the second panel on the davits. I am amazed at the performance.

Really happy with wind gen. I liked the extra screws they sent. I liked the knowledgeable service provided by you. And I liked the price. I like the controller and can't imagine not having one. The wire is great Quality and much better than west marines. Also liked the one day shipping.

I am sure I will sell something for you down the road. Was impressed of the quality of the Silent Wind Generator!...The generator folds down to allow me to go under bridges,but I may have to add the stays and make them quick disconnect for heavy winds.

We just installed the solar panels and they work great! I wrote a short article about our boat's electricity needs and how we satisfied them thanks to eMarine Systems!

Thank you for your patience and professional assistance in choosing the solar panels that fit our needs!

I was more than pleased with the help and expertise that Gil provided us with. He went out of his way to help us design our solar panel frame and was a great help. Wish I had known about E Marine before I ordered my panels. You are a great company and wish we had one in Canada.

Hello Jeremy and Paul,

My system is installed for a week now and it works wonderfully! I am very happy with it.

Thank you for your professionnalism.

Bernard A.


Last week I had reported an apparent problem with my Rutland 913 and or the HRDX controller which I purchased back in June of 2008 from E-Marine. As a result of my conversations, primarily with Andrew of your Tech area, we came to the conclusion that there might be a problem in the controller area and not in the generator. He walked me through several test in order to reach this probable conclusion. Still he requested from me photos of the readings from the controller at rest and in motion. I have attempted to supply those in the attachments. They are poor, at best, due to the controllers location. They do show that while at rest the controller seems to read a -009 to 014, and when in motion, at low speed, it reads around -002 to -004. and varies with the speed. In general it does not seem to be working as it has in the past, and Andrew indicated that the - readings concern him most. We are at this time giving the unit a few more days, hoping for more wind, and will determine whether to repair or replace.

I have been very happy with the system but more than that, I have been so impressed with Andrew and his obvious concern for my problem and his follow through. I am at this time living on the boat without shore power at the moment ant am relying totally on batteries. Andrew made every attempt to reach a positive analysis with me and although the problem is still with us no one could have done more over the phone. He e-mailed Marlec and provided their response to me in a very timely manner. In the business world today it is truly rare to make contact with someone who so obviously cares and is concerned. Rest assured that E-Marine, through Andrew, has made a friend who will, without hesitation, make all future purchases through you, and spread the news through the marine community in this area.

Thank You,
Earl C.

Wow, Jeremy!!

That was fast. I got the panel yesterday! I really appreciate your help. I will be sure to tell all who look at my panels about your company, and how pleased I was with your service.

Thanks again,
John


I returned from a 3 weeks sailing in the Caribbean where I live, after installing the solar panel kit. It was easy to install and they are performing much better than I expected.

Thank
Jose


The reason I bought the eMarine kit was so that I didn't have to search all over the net only to have to deal with multiple billings, multiple shipping dates, and then have to figure out how to get all the components to play together. My preference is to sail instead of spend time dockside trying to figure out an installation. The few extra dollars were well worth it. And no, I don't have stock in either Air Breeze or eMarine.

I purchased two KC130TM's together with Blue Sky controller, cable & fitting kits from e-marine. Joe Turner was very helpful with my order. Although I arranged the air freight myself, the whole package arrived in 3 days to Panama.
