Brian,

We are closing tomorrow . Got the big check in me pocket

The truck is packed up full of boat stuff and we are heading south tonight.

The closing starts at 08:00 a.m and after that we'll start moving stuff aboard. We are actually sleeping aboard Saturday night. Plan is to open expensive bottle of bubbly wine on Sat night.

I will take some pictures and have them on Sailnet shortly.

It will be a few weeks before we bring her home as I will have the yard do some mods first. (davits, inverter etc)

Thanks again for all your advice, I might keep bugging you for more info

I am excited.

This may not fit the thread exactly, but the Guest Battery Monitor Charger which I installed (permanent installation, 10/20 two battery model as I remember) had a line in the manual that said "do not use on batteries larger than 100Amp Hours" or something to that effect. I was going to install larger batteries, but wound up with 100 Amp hour batteries, because no one could tell me why the charger had this limitation. Is this typically something because it overheats with larger battery banks, or does anyone know the answer? I am not on the boat, but when I look on ebay, it is identical to one called the Guest Smart Leg Battery charger. But why the limitation to 100 amp hour, and can I not increase the Amp hours of each bank unless I get a larger charger?
