let me ask you this- if your car battery was dead would you leave your vehicle running in the driveway for 45 minutes??
Yes I know we're talking about different styles of batteries
No rant - we (you and the rest of us in this thread apparently) are not talking the same thing.

You are talking replacing a starter's use...

We are talking about a boat sailing blue water - not day trips.
