    Was there some Annasplaining there with the solar panel? 🙂 A good informative vlog 🙂 Have you considered BIG solar panels for the boat?

  2. I found this blog very helpful and especially liked that it was such a nice day! Well done, K & A!
    Notice no cats around for this . . . off enjoying a warm spot??? /cats can be their own recharging stations if the sun is out.
    Thanks, again . . . You guys are great! Admit it . . . the solar lasses have struck again!

    I always love your videos. Please do a review of a decent battery pack that will charge an ipad. xx

    Don’t encourage me to buy too many products! I have the tefal pans, the dyson vacuum, the kitchen foil, film, towel dispenser. There’s probably other stuff that I’ve forgotten. Oh yes Annamarie’s watercolours. How could I forget them!

    Are you going to Crick 2018? Me and my wife are going on the Saturday for our first time. Interesting what you said about arriving early and taking your own food cheers.

    For a low-cost alternative, you could just pull up next to Jono's boat and plug-in. He's got enough stored energy to top you off.

  9. good to see u girls out and about on such a lovely day, all the best from australia.

  10. I don’t think it’s a good idea to have your cellphone in direct sunlight along with the solar case – I would shade the phone itself…

  11. Mark C says:

    Why not get a real solar panels? A large battery bank to store the energy.

  12. John says:

    You ladies are a couple of geniuses aren't you! Always enjoy your videos.

  13. Adrian.J says:

    Hi Ladies, i have been following Jono, and he has explained about his Solar panels and all the gadgets he has to monitor his batteries etc, but to be honest as interesting as it all was, it was all very complicated and confusing in parts, he may have been speaking in Russian lol, can you explain the basics you need so you can use large fixed solar panels for your batteries on a boat, and what the bits do Please.

  14. Kath, Anna lovely skin tone, if that is ok to say so? Being country girls full time, I can see the need to be self-surfactant. Like Kath said, security is also very important, Not good telling the world. This would help a tad! Cheers

    Some very vocal bird life in the background there!

  16. wsatnutter says:

    hi nice sunny vid

  17. Mandy Smith says:

    That was so interesting, thank you. The battery packs look fantastic- even if you’re not on a boat x

  18. Ted Gallucci says:

    Nice and informative, I will have to widen my investigation into portable power and solar devices to include some of the ones you mentioned that I haven't seen before.

    Also I recall that Amazon has a or had a program where if you post a link to a product they give you a very small amount of money when someone uses your link to buy that product.

  19. Diana B says:

    You both seem so calm. Like kitties with your fur smoothed. Life seems to suit you both..and your furry family.

  20. David Howard says:

    Good to see you out in the sun you've found some good gadgets to charge your phones with. Are the lights in your boat powered my solar?
    If so could you show us your boat solar setup Invertor etc and battery pack you have.
    Looking forward to you cruising about the country and showing us the sights.
    Great informative channel

  21. Pondus 500 says:

    Always nice to see your video ladies !!!

  22. What about a vertical axis wind turbine as it's always windy in the UK might look quite cool on top of the boat

  23. John ONeill says:

    Such a beautiful day! Thanks for the information and I see your cats also took the opportunity to get a feline solar recharge.

  24. Shame you can't make energy from the galvanic reaction with the boat and the water and the air but then something Would degrade or wear out like the boat or the anode

  25. The lithium cells don't like getting hot don't leave them in the very hot sun too long 😋 try too keep them less than 40c
