Mixing AGM and wet cell batteries

Thanks for the reply. I returned the deep cycle wet battery for one that had more cold cranking amps, but not deep cycle. I''ll install it tomorrow as my starter battery "only", unless there''s an...

I''m about to add a deep cycle wet battery as the starter. The existin deep cycle AGM batteries will become the house bank. The charger is set at 13.6 volts, which (I''m told) is ideal for AGM...

engine size

I once read (I forget where) as a rule of thumb, a sailboat''s auxilliary engine should be about 1 HP for every 500#s of displacement.

Boats and Luxury Watches

Actually, there are Rolex models that have a stopwatch, and they''re all considered to be chronometers. Also, they need to be cleaned every five years - not every year.
