Re: Battery Banks on Boats - Why all the fuss?

I live on my boat with no shore power. I obsess over the batteries. My wife keeps saying that she is going to take a picture of me viewing the battery monitor. Guess she has seen me in it too many times.

In all the time you have been looking at it haven't you learned anything? Are you suddenly expecting it to be different even though you have been doing the same things?

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

Good comment. At best, I understand the charging cycle and how discharging progresses overnight. It is pretty interesting in a nerdy kind of way. I know how the discharging goes if the wind generator is producing at night or not. It is pretty interesting.

Yes, as a sport that boaters do as an obsessing over the boxes of lead and acid thing.
