The only problem I see with this Dave is that the second configuration is a bit more prone to failure than the first.

From what I see... if any battery in the first configuration dies, you have a 12V and a 6V battery, which may or may not be connected, depending on the failure. On the second one, if a battery fails, you will definitely have a connection between the 6V and the 12V battery.

However, I am a bit rusty on my electrical circuit theory, since its been over 20 years since I've used it regularly.

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.
