Cool New Battery!

HI sorry if i did anything wrong before to everyone this place is great. Met a few more people today at the marina, is everyone as nice? Got a few ideas and names of people to help me with the things I need AND yesterday bought a big battery for the boat since the one in it died before I bought the boat, happy as can be, lights came on, radio, wow! Got rid of the old fridge they had in there that was too big and found yet another sail! Best day yet, got to see the boat after sun went down with all the lights on in the cabin... it was magic!

Re: new battery!!!

Coming down the pier towards your boat at night and seeing the cabin lights on......... always makes you feel good.

Wait until you come out from shore in a dinghy towards your boat and you see it in the moonlight with the cabin lit up - a prettier sight is hard to find

cabin lit up, hell nothing beats having left the boat at anchor a while and then coming back on the dinghy and seeing the BOAT still there!

Re: new battery!!!

Most cruisers are wise in being far to stingy with their 12VDC power to leave cabin lights on while they are not on board.
