You could probably get away with not running the genset at all if you had a
solar panel or two dedicated to the nav/comm system. You say that it's
"fully isolated"; is it mechanically isolated, or electrically isolated?
e.g.: is it completely separated from the rest of the electrical system (no
connection other than the genset), or is it run through a
diode/inductor/capacitor filter network?

Very very fortunately nothing happens very fast on a sailboat and
consequently the 3 programs that are running simultaneously are not too
demanding,
besides the 1 GB of RAM seems to satisfy their demands. I just keep the
battery
charged by running the genset for 30 minutes every 3 hours.
