Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

About batteries, they really donít like to spend the winter in the cold without some charging going on. If you take them off charge, you should pull them and store them in a space where it stays above freezing. Also youíll want to give them a trickle charge every few months. Depending on the size of the batteries (mine are 100 lbs each), keeping a charger going may be worth it.
