nice work, pity its still reliant on batteries.
A guy I worked with has just built a home that is off the grid, cant make toast or boil the jug easily, but can use an LED TV for 3 hours a day , run a PC and microwave oven. No sunday roast, quick cup of tea or toast:-(

My boat has diesels that chunk out the CO2/mile equivalent of a dozen I-talian supercars, at 80-90 % MCR a few hundred, does toast too.
I invest cash in plastic, not trees. One fine day, plastic stock will skyrocket.

(at a dingy pic gloaters forum they'd say it's not a boat, but a yacht, wainkers)

You've lost me, is plastic going to be valuable post oil?
How big is your boat, sounds like you got more than one diesel engine
