Should I be concerned about the house battery
Both batteries (a group 24 starter and 27 house) showed 100% charge on the meter before leaving the dock. After only about an hour and half of sailing with only the gauges on I went to start the motor with the switch on just the house battery and nothing. Ran down and switched to all and it fired right up. I know the group 27 isn't designed to be a starter battery but figured it would have enough to at least spin the motor a little. My question is since it didn't do anything should I be considering replacing the batteries?
