We have referred to as a dinghy boat with a solid hull, a RIB as a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat). The boat is equipped with PVC tubes that are solar radiation (UV) very quickly porous and leaky. It begins with the PVC starts to stick, and that starts after a short time (1-2 years). To get protection against the dissolution of the PVC tubing we sew a cover of the awning fabric is then mounted as possible to fit firmly on the dinghy. Abutting edges, corners and statements are trimmed with faux leather.

The end of December in Lefkas still pleasant temperatures. It is sometimes cloudy, but there are also some days with sunshine. Also in December, yachts go, even if only a few. We ride a bike across the causeway and floating bridge and around Lafkada. At the entrance to Lefkas floats are also still on the road in December.

Once the solar cells are mounted, we drive the 7 nm to mainland in the Bay Varko. After Vliho we pass Nidri and on the starboard side the island Skorpio. Under sail, it goes on and towards afternoon we anchor for a few days alone in the bay. The new solar panels work well and the current budget is already better. We are still more cells Install later.
Solar cells More

Electricity comes from the socket:. Yes it is often, but not on ships, and not by itself. The current must be "produced". With the engine having a generator or by solar cells. All variants have their pros and cons. We have had good experience with solar panels and want to grow some of them again. The prices have fallen sharply in recent years / months and so we ordered 2 Monokristaline cells with 130 W by prices for 1 EURO / Watt than the current solar more economically than is, 4 years ago we were still at 5 EURO / watt. The two cells we have installed on our short Bimini and connected via a regulator to the battery. ( http://www.enjoy-solar.de )

The power supply is on yachts always an issue. I we have been twice 130 W solar panels barely enough energy on board. To get some more, we ordered two more solar panels, and now come to Vliho to the yacht club there. We make our way of Lefkada in the Bay of Vliho, just 12 nautical miles. The bay is well and safe and we are waiting for the delivery. In the afternoon, we go ashore and find the pier under water and also a few classic cars parked in the garden. ( http://www.vlihoyc.com )

After a few days in the Bay we drive to Lefkada. We are a few days at the town pier and are otherwise at anchor. The harbor promenade adjusts to winter and there are all the tables and chairs of the restaurants are gone. Many charter boats are now on land or placed in the shipyards on land.

We like it particularly well in the bay Varko. We are alone, the water is clean and we can still, even though it's already the middle of October, go swimming. After a few days this fish lives with us at the ship. He has scared away all other fish. Only if doing something pushes him out the curiosity. We lure him with a teaspoon of the images to make. It is small, but still looks dangerous. Night passes over to us the bells of the goats. You may still roam free and come to the beach. The few cottages are abandoned. We can imagine that in the summer it can be very nice too.
