Honda 8HP outboard to charge 12V

I only have DC on Edel 22'. No shore power. Minimal requirements: interior lights that I will update to LED. Doubtful I will ever be in a situation where I am sailing in dusk or dark and in need of nav lights. No radio. No bilge pump.

The previous owner is storing the Honda 8hp (BF8A) until next spring. In reading its manual I noted that it comes with a cord and outlet that allows the Honda to charge a 12V. (12V/ 5amps)

As I was considering getting an intelligent charger to hook up to shore power being able to top up my 12V with the Honda is another option.

Has anyone used this type of charging set up? How long do you charge? How often?

Thanks
