Photo email from Scott?

Scott, you tried to send me some photo's of the outboard mount you made, and some photo's of changes in the kitchen. However there were no photo's attached to your email, and your email address bounces. So I am asking through this quite indirect way: Could you give it a retry? Thanks,
Jef

Your timing couldn't be better, I lost my starboard battery last week (less than a year old) so I've decided to replace my 3 105 ah house batteries and one 105 ah starter battery with 4 31 AGM batteries for the house and a 24 AGM for the starter battery for the starboard engine. On my boat all the batteries are housed in the port engine hold, that is where I'll place all the house batteries and move the starter battery to the starboard engine hold. I'll also add a "centerfielder" from Balmar so I can use both Altenators to charge the house batteries and a temp monitor on the Altenators so they don't over heat charging the AGM's.
This increases my house to 440 ah's from around 315 for the original configuration.

I'd like to see that too. Did you put the new batteries in the same location. Access to my batteries is so difficult that I havent had time to get in there and check them out. All I can see is that they say "Freedom stationary marine batteries" and there is a sticker on the side that says 105ah x 12 v. I am assuming they are no maintenance wet cells but just wanted to confirm with someone else. What were the make and type of batteries that you replaced?

They are lead acid batteries, no maint. Don't believe it. only gel or agm are no maint..
As soon as I finish the drawings I'll post them. Need to combine the balmar schematics with what I've found on the boat. I'm still considering moving the batteries to under the port berth.

Keep the batteries in the ER
Opening the bunk to the ER will bring you fumes and smell + longer cable runs.

I had it done at Mango Marine at the FT Lauderdale Marine center. I gave them pictures of the 40, and said make it look just like it.
