Not trying (it's effortless) to be cheeky, but it might be much more cost effective/less hassle/simpler to buy a set of Emergency Nav. lights (battery operated) and a few freezer blocks to put in your cooler...
Just a thought. Those coolers run at about 50 watts, BTW.
I know a bloke who REALLY screwed up his Fastnet race with one.
Screwed up as in no starter, no VHF, no GPS, no lights. Found this out as he turned the Fastnet headed for the UK!
