Re: PSC 31 battery set up

thanks, Paul...I settled on the boat yesterday and took another look around. you're riight about the overhead space on those Rolls. They do have some life left in them, so I think I will let them sit for now. One is being used as a starter batttery, so adding a starter battery above the stuffing box and rewiring the battery connections so they are wired in parallel will give me nearly 450Ah. (full disclosure-I'm working with an electrical engineer so I don't blow up the boat-I melted the dashboard out of a 72 landrover once and know what I don't know).

Thanks for the feedback, all. I'm sure I'll have more questions on other topics as I get to know the boat.

Elan
