Before i set out on this journey i literary had thousands of questions. In the end i found it impossible to answer them all and still be able to set sail within two years. I decided to stick to the main/big questions and take the small questions and challenges as they come. This turned out to be the best solution for me and i am still learning (every day). It is kind of like work. If you think too far ahead and try to solve every small eventuality you will fail youer job because you have dug yourself down too far.

Two of my solar panels. This would work significantly better if i had them on a place with no shadow but until i get a new bimini roof this is where they will have to stay. . My wind genny, Airmarine. This is the most powerfull one on the market and the one that makes the most noise. Hated by most cruisers. 

TIPS: If you have the space you can significantly reduce the noise by mounting it on the mast high up. (easy on ketch)
