It didn't even occur to me about electronics on the boat! Glad you had some outlets. Generator? Plugged in when you were in port?
BIL sez you don't want to buy meat there in the islands...it's questionable. So, they bought a bunch of chicken, some steak, hotdogs, burgers, meatballs, etc and froze them and brought that meat with us in 2 coolers. Good thing...can't imagine how much more it would have been to buy it. And, you don't want to get sick, so better safe than sorry

Older boats don't have outlets. We were told that and prepared for it (even tho this boat we rented was only about 1 yr old). Most have a 12 volt plug and that's it. So, we had sort of like a power strip of regular outlets, but the whole thing plugged into 12 volt (round plugs like in cars for those unfamiliar). We were thrilled to have 1 double regular outlet in each cabin.

We used the AC/generator in the evenings and overnight while we slept. The generator runs on gas from the starboard tank... it (and the engine) recharge the batteries while running so you can use things like the radio and navigation equiptment while sailing. CANNOT use generator and engines at the same time...overheats engines. Don't ask how I know that
