Sailing La Vagabonde
Ever thought about renewable energy on a boat? We hope you are following along with our "Sailing Basics Guide" https://www.sailing-lavagabonde.com/guide
In this video we do a quick "energy budget" and discuss lithium batteries, solar power, hydro generators and what we have learned about minimising our day to day output. This leads onto what this has taught us about trying to consume less in general having lived on the ocean for the last 5 years.

I just got to know you guys. I build PC and hackintosh. In terms of efficiency, Final Cut Pro and even Da Vinci are faster and more efficiente compared to Premiere...:D Thanks for the amazing content...
Stephen Grant
Is there a gas option for the fridges?
Brian Miller
Just catching up... I became a fan about a week or so ago. Im a Quantitative Strategist( Design Trading & Investing models for Hdgfunds/investors/etc), so the shows been playing in the background ever since, as I work... This show, and your obvious joy has given me an interest in sailing, possibly to purchase a cat next yr, and a HUGE THANK YOU for offering such quality content. As a consumer, Ill soon do my part in helping to support your quests+journey's+content.... Due to my Electrical Eng background, have you considered adding a small wind turbine/generator? It may help balance the times when solar output is a bit inefficient.. Im sure you are asked frequently, but what would be your optimal Cat len-size for comfortable transoceanic travel, for 2-4 people? Maybe I havent hit that episode yet...:) Any rate, thanks again, & Cheers

An amp is not a unit of energy that can be stored in a battery. I is a unit of current. What you are referring to, is an amp/hour. :)
Let's say you have a battery capacity of 10 amp/hours then you would be able to draw 1 amp for 10 hours or 10 amps for one hour. :)
frodev
you gotta measure your power in watts guys for transparency. Otherwise great video :) 👍🏼
DURO
This is amazing
robert miller
why no wind charger ?
shawn Taylor
How did you determine how much energy each of the items you listed used?
bc jams
How many house batteries does the outremer have on board. I think i see a place to add 4 more..2 in hull right by the dagger boards but i cant find out how many are already there. ( not including the engine starter batts

Talk to Ocean Volt about converting to electric drives, be done with that diesel!
Coleen West
Excellent! QUESTION - If you had a medium to smaller AC unit (say 12,000 to 14,000 BTUs), and ran it only 3 or 4 hours per day (during the super hot period), can you "guestimate" how many Amps that would take - Trying to figure out what addition solar and hydro power would be required to "have it all" so to speak.
Aaron Powell
Can you guys fit some more solar panels? Maybe on the roof?
Chanro Du Toit
Amps don't mean much without voltage, we need kwh
Curious space Monkey
loved how you covered renewable energy and made such a funny video! well done guys, only found your channel recently and think your both brilliant!!!! love your channel keep up the amazing work you do, hopefully will be able to persuade my girl to do this with me one day x
Hulot
tip top results on resource management. One thing that kills me but probably doesn't apply in the tropics is wasted water waiting for washing up water . shower etc to run hot. Guess you can collect it to wash the boat down?
william gosvener
What about elect. Baby toys?

Don't use headphones for 8 hours a day! or use airtube.
Artur da Silva
Hi guys, love the episodes you're making. So you guys have solar and water energy, but what about wind energy? Seeing as you only use the water energy whilst sailing and you can use the wind energy whilst on anchor. Love to hear your thoughts on the subject. Regards Artur

Hey guys, thanks for all the amazing adventures you take us on. Was wondering what a bad weather day looks like on La Vaga... Having to go about necessary chores braving the weather and just passing time? What do you think? Also I remember Eleyna mentioning her phone the other day which made me think, how do you guys manage that? Having a permanent phone number travelling around? Anyhoo thought I'd say hi and ask. Cheerio! Can't wait to see more... Spearfishing! Hehe ciao ciao

Trapped Inside Dangerous Coral Renewable Energy on a Boat 2 days ago   15:07

Having snuck into our spot at high tide it seemed far less treacherous than when it dropped later that afternoon and we were completely surrounded by coral reef. I would get up on deck and have a look around and just slowly shake my head every half an hour or so. We decided to tie off the stern to a mooring ball so as to be held in place and were able to ride out the night without one of the Bahamian famous squalls. The next day the weather had picked up making our anchorage less and less comfortable so we decided to leave before the next high tide and so I decided to drag along beside the boat until the worst of the reef had been passed.
