Yeah,the Iota is probably a good choice.

Four T-105's in series (225AH @ 24VDC) is probably a bit on the smallish side for a Nicholson 44, unless you're real miserly about electric consumption.

Yeah, I thing anything you can do to build a larger house battery bank would be helpful. T-145's would be an improvement over T-105's, if you have the space for them.

260AH @ 24VDC is equivalent to 520AH @ 12VDC, and that's a pretty workable house size for a CN44, IMHO.
