Forgot to mention battries
I forgot to tell you about the batteries.
there is another potential issue...
I think the batteries might be ****. They are two deep cycle golf cart batteries.
Obviouly I would want more juice than golf cart batteries if I go offshore, so I would replace them, but, I do not think they are working fine as is right now anyway, this may be another reason to lower the price of the boat.
The batteries were fully charged when we went on the Sea trial. When we came back, 1 hour later, after just using the stereo, they were down a significant amount. from 13.5 V(when fully charged) to about 11.5 V
I do not know much about batteries, is this normal? We hardly used any power at all.
How much would replacements be?
