JosRulz-

Get yourself an Iota battery charger and either a echo charger (preferred) or battery combiner (less expensive, works, but not as good IMHO). Wire the Iota to a new AC breaker, if you've got space on the shorepower AC panel to do so.

To charge at the dock, plug the shorepower in, turn on the breaker for the Iota Charger, turn the main battery switch OFF. The echo charger/battery combiner will make sure both batteries get topped off.

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.
