I doubt that hellosailor has really had much experience cruising in the typical power-hungry sailboat with minimal battery capacity. If he had, he'd know that there aren't many sailors who are willing to keep their eyes glued on the voltmeter and, worse, get up at 3 or 4AM to switch from battery bank A to battery bank B so as to avoid a deeper than desired discharge.
