I got my batteries through last winter on the hard using an old automotive charger. I might have had it plugged in for 5 or 6 hours every few weeks or so. Didn't notice any more frying than they already appeared to be I only used the charger while I was there doing work or hanging with the boat, never left it running unattended.
