Good articles. I ran over our configuration with Lifeline - and we should be well set up. We replaced the batteries on Saturday, and all appears to be working fine. However, based upon those articles, I need to do some additional checking/monitoring - especially on the alternator
. THAT ain't too good...
A special thanks to Tim Kings, the designer
of our boat. Sheer genius in the battery
location: At the foot of the aft bunk, directly below a 24" hatch
, directly below the end of the boom. Simple block and tackle to pull them out and swing them over into a cart on the pier. Made easy work of the 155 lb each batteries. I mean EASY. Hardest part, by far, was getting them from the trunk into the cart.
