Thank you for following my Instructables.

Really like your solar power Instructables. Will come back and look in detail. You might like to see my Youtube video of a totally solar powered Stirling cycle engine I built last year:

Is your sailboat a ketch or yawl? (or am I way off - I'm a power boater).

I am very interested in using your new setup for the exact same use... to warm up a bathroom floor.. Any chance you are ready to share the knowledge? :) Where did you get that new panel? or you made it? Awesome stuff! All the best, Renzo

Hi I got the panel on freecycle.com, I had to solder it in a few spots. I just recently drained the system because of freezing weather and an filling with rv antifreeze. I will be taking pictures soon and post a new instructable. The tank under the floor is the existing 12 volt water tank that I plumbed to the panel. It is completely separate of the fresh water system. It was performing well on the few sunny days we've had this winter.
