Hmm... 6 T-105 Golf Cart batteries would be 675 Amp-Hours. IIRC, you need to size the charger amperage rate to approximately 10% of the amp-hour rating for it to charge the batteries properly... so you'd probably want at least a 70 Amp charger. Personally, I'd go with a 100 Amp charger... especially if you have AGM batteries, and use an Echo Charger to charge the starting battery.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
