EDIT...OOPS...I read your note wrong. With 300 AH's. You need a bigger charger than you are planning. 60 amps would be about right but you can get away with less if you are simply doing dockside charging and speed of charge is not a factor. For flooded cells, the IOTA Bill notes is a much better bargain but you need to get their smart "regulator" as well to insure a proper charge regimen. I also agree with Dawg that ONE large battery bank for the house is a better approach for cruising/charging.
