Re: Battery Sizing - am I crazy?

Those are big dogs at 155 lbs a piece. No shame in not wanting to haul those in and out.

If you can size a smaller battery at 2x your normal usage, then go for it. You could always replace the 8D with two smaller batts that are connected in parallel.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
