If you've got a built in charger, just use that.
DO NOT put a portable generator in the engine room, the generator that used to be in there had wet exh and the engine wasn't air cooled. Looking at pics of your boat, strapping a small honda or honywell generator or similar on the cabin top should work fine.

And make sure the carbon monoxide doesn't get you dead.

Bye the way, used non deep cycle batteries should last you...oh, couple of days maybe, when used as house batteries.
