Re: Battery Sizing - am I crazy?

Well, I ended up buying two Everstart Marine 29DC (selection #95), 845 marine cranking, 122AH@1amp batteries. This afternoon I loaded them up on the boat, and took out the old ones.

Taking out the old ones involved a lot bumps, scraps, lots of ropes, block and tackle, a metal bar across the top of the companion way, etc etc...

I can't believe I got them out! They're in the cockpit now. Need to figure out how to get them off the boat. I can't see slinging them in/out of my dinghy like I did the new ones.

Probably need to enlist some strongbacks.

I'll post again with how the batteries work out.
