one battery bank and a jump box
The new issue of Good Old Boat has a article about battery banks. The author favors one big bank made up of golf cart batteries. With his system if you accidently drain your bank and need to start your engine you recharge the bank with small honda generator.
I liked his logic but I don't want a gas powered generator on my boat so I thought a jump box for an emergency engine start would be a better way to go. It can charge on 12V but it can't drain by itself and it would certainly have enough teeth to start my little engine.
Does this make sense?
