Mariner 4HP 4S Alternator

Good afternoon
I have just bought a secondhand (2006) Mariner 4HP 4S Long shafted outboard and note that at time of purchase it was optional to have a power supply (alternator).

Can this option be retro fitted?

If no: Warm sandwiches and hand held nav. lights!

If yes: What parts do I need or can I buy a complete kit with everything from coil to output socket.

We own a small 14' sailing boat (Skipper 14) and would like to run a powered cool box and nav lights (evening fishing) from our outboard.

I would welcome any thoughts/knowledge

Thanks in advance

Christian

Your sailing plans sound fun.

I use an outboard on my GP14 sailing dinghy for motoring round, and it goes very well, though it is an old British Seagull.

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!

Probably more than the charging output of a 4hp then.
