Re: Installation & Orientation of Flooded Batteries

Really great article.

STRAPS
Here are some general purpose straps that I keep using and buying. Really high quality and dirt cheap, one of those rare finds. There are TWO sets of straps. Just cut them down to the desired size. They would be perfect for holding down batteries, going to order more now and get rid of the cheapies that came with the boat.



If you think I work for Amazon I don't, well at least not anymore

So the puzzle I installed doesn't fit the recommended guidelines? Dang, there is no way to fit 4 6v in that box otherwise.

But you got em at Sam's Club and they're probably less expensive than refitting the battery compartment...

You have to look at it in "years lost". In a best case scenario would they have lasted 7 years? So if you only got 5 years break out the "cost"... Sometimes it does not make financial sense to re-orient and just accept what you have...

If you can fit them and orient them "optimally" then do so but if you can't accept it and go sailing...
