30 Amp panel

I have installed everything for a second 30 amp service on the boat. I went with a 6 slot breaker panel but am wondering if I should have gone with more slots. I am currently only using two but will add more as I update my electrical systems. In a year or so I want to add another battery bank and will run that charger through this service. Any opinions or suggestions on a larger panel?

Re: 30 Amp panel

if it's already there I would just leave it alone and worry about it when you run out.

normally the 2nd plug has some of the bigger loads. stove, heat, ac, etc so you don't have many circuits on it anyways.
