Battery Charging Question

Gordmay, Thanks for the info. I guess I assumed that my "fully automatic" charger did more than pump 12 volts 24/7. That''s what I get for assuming. My boat is on shore power always except during the few hours I''m sailing each week, and the charger is permanently connected. When I bought the boat, it came with the small charger I mentioned earlier, and a larger charger which wasn''t connected. Here is the larger one which I brought home to use:

Is this charger a 3 stage charger? I will try to find the paperwork on it and learn more. Perhaps I should take this one aboard and use it on my new battery. Many thanks to you......Gary
