Re: Power Battery Set up for 27ft sailboat

I suggest a couple of the marine deepcycle/starting batteries available at Canadian Tire, Costco,WalMart etc. (WalMart has 120 ah on sale for just under $90.00 right now.)
Be sure to mount whatever you get with the cells running fore and aft, ie. the row of caps running port/starboard.
For charging most of the newer automatic units should work for you. Size to meet your needs.
