Re: Do I need a battery charger?
Before you buy anything why not use the boat for a month or two and see how it goes? if you run your engine to get in / out of the harbor, that may provide enough power. My boat has been on a mooring forever and my batteries stay charged. I use my boat 1-2 times a week, motoring in and out of the harbor for 10-15 minutes each way. My electrical use is pretty minimal: I run a 5' chart plotter, VHF radio, depth, wind, speed instruments and an autopilot, that's about it. My batteries get charged enough from my alternator.
