    Re: PV higher this year than 2019

    Each MPPT can take about 5000W.

    We have 4600W panels, about half facing NW and half NE. The highest peak is around 4000W but the advantage I have is generation from nearly sunrise to sunset (so...

    In my years deep sea fishing I've had better luck knowing where the good spots are than using a fish finder.

    Re: Kayaking anyone?

    I'll keep my eyes open. Paddle skis have gone out of fashion and the market is limited but now and again good deals come around.

    Re: Kayaking anyone?

    I started paddle skiing/wave skiing/ surfing when I was 16, most of the time at Buffelsbaai. So I know how to use a paddle and love the waves. I found calm water just too boring.

    I'm 1.78m and can see how anyone taller could have a few hassles. The one advantage of the Gogga range is that they fit in a standard garage which was one of my requirements. Unfortunately I can't...

    Exactly why I bought a Navara 9 years ago and still drive it. I have no preference for a specific brand (previous bakkie was Hilux SC but I needed double cab) and test drove everything I could get...

    Re: 2011 Navara Questions

    I can answer a few of your questions based on our experience:

    - We get about 10 to 11 l/100km on our DC. That is with canopy and AT tyres.
    - I don't think these bakkies have any specific...

    Oh I've sold it years ago. It was huge fun but very impractical.
