Hi Alan,
many thanks.
I installed a switch to disconnect the alternator ONLY at engine start when batteries (AGM) are full.
It works up to 1800 rpm , more/less, than the alternator starts automatically.
I sailed from Thailand to EU (3 years) no problem. It is an easy option, always reversible.
Best

Hi Giovanni

yes, the internal regulator needs to be disconnected and the field wire led out of the back of the alternator.
There is a document in the files section on how to do it
Cheers
