As to the inverter, that load is very intermittent and it will likely be turned off except when I need to use the microwave, coffee pot or electric tea kettle.
Umm, I don't see that working out well for you. You'll probably need a Honda generator to run those things. That or just use the propane stove to heat your water and food.

I'm skeptical that one grp 27 is going to live long running a dc fridge.

I'll probably make a few weekend trips with whatever setup I have and make some measurements on how feasible it is to run from the second battery bank.
I recommend installing a Xantrex LinkLite or equivalent to monitor charge status and battery condition if you don't have one yet. How else will you know what's going on with your charge status? Once you get everything set up, just unplug from shore power at the dock. See how your system is working. You don't have to anchor out to figure things out.
