FYI, it doesn't bother me that the terminals are exposed because the battery bank is located where no one can accidentally get shocked. Also no water
can drip onto them. But my boat
is getting surveyed (for a sale) and I'm sure that the surveyor
will notice the lack of insulation
Only that in terms of a "deficiency" that would block a sale
, it's gotta rate really low for reasons to reject buying
an otherwise ok boat.... It is an ok boat, yes?
Don't accept a buyer's survey
til there's a firm offer, and if that's the only sticking point from the survey
, knock fifty or a hundred off the agreed price
. You both feel better afterwards.
