Ed and Kristen are down visiting me in Key West. Just before their arrival I borrowed the battery testing equipment from West Marine and discovered that my house batteries were in need of replacement. I have gotten 5 years out of them and for a cruiser that is not bad. But I started to laugh as I was lugging the 110 lb batteries around. The last time I had to do this Ed helped me replace them. So maybe I should not let Ed visit for another 5 years.
I changed out the three 4D batteries for six 6 volt golf cart batteries. I have gained more power than another 4D would have provided in less space with less weight. No wonder so many cruisers go to golf cart batteries.
