Without resorting to LiPo, (which I would if the battery
controller / monitor
technology were just a little better), I am having a hard time fitting a decent battery
bank into the stock position in the starboard engine
I am considering building a battery shelf in the starboard side of the lazarette under / behind the cockpit
. I would have to put in a conduit and 0/0 cable from the new battery bank to the existing switches and distribution features in the starboard engine
space. On the other hand, the wire run from the solar
bank would be shorter.
Other than losing some convenient ready storage
, what am I missing. Has any one else done this?
