@Auspicious Have enough power for a microwave? Those microwave pasta cookers use very little water.

 

Good question. Depends on the boat and trip duration. Lots of cruising boats do have microwaves. Power for that may come from batteries through an inverter or directly from a generator. Using an inverter means having to charge the batteries again which may come from wind, solar, main engine alternator, or generator. Main engine or generator means drawing on fuel which is a limited resource on passage or cruising off the grid. There are lots of fixed consumers of power (navigation electronics, refrigeration, lights) before luxury items like microwaves.

 

Resource management is key to a pleasant voyage.
