Excellent info guys. I keep the fridge on all the time, I think thats what did these wet cells in. I do plan on spending a lot of time on her dockside, in between weekend trips, probably several days a week, so maybe AGM would be the way to go. I have the reevaluate the battery location. I have room for three, bigger than the 27s that are in there now, in the engine compartment. I may be able to find room for the starter in a separate cubby about two feet away out of the engine compartment. I will post a picture of the aft space. Maybe just less of the bigger batteries will work. Fridge and water heater are 12v.
