any suggestions for a good battery, inboard charger setup for a 27ft sailboat that doesn't use to much power normally for 2-3 day trips. Always docked at marina with power when not in use
How about a little more info. How old are your batteries? Do you have a refrigerated icebox? Are you running a lot of electronics? Lots of lights and have you switched them over to LED's yet?
What kind/size engine are you starting? Any other 12V hogs on your boat?
