"Can you charge your Sailboat’s 12V Lead Acid Battery with WaterLily?" YES!
"Can you charge your power bank and personal electronics by towing a WaterLily behind your sailboat?" YES!
Last week we had the opportunity to go for an exhilarating spin on a J/29 sailboat around CBS to view some icebergs close up. Naturally we took a Waterlily along to see how it performs when towed behind a sailboat! Several customers have bought a Waterlily for this purpose, and many more have inquired about it. We can confirm it works very well! At a speed of 5.5 knots, the waterlily was putting out 18W! Check out the video below to see for yourself:
Here are some tips for towing your WaterLily behind any kind of watercraft:
The sailors who were kind enough to take us out for a spin were really impressed with Waterlily, especially given the affordability compared to accessories and add ons for their boats. They noted:
“The speed of the boat was not impacted by towing the Waterlily.”
“Setup is easy and requires no modifications to the boat.”
“The Waterlily does not change to the look of the boat.”
“The WaterLily could allows boat owners to keep their electrical systems charged without using noisy generators, running their engines” and,
“it’s a must have for emergency situations / loss of power at sea.”
Be sure to pick up a hand crank accessory too, so you can generate power even without a sail.
