Boat Batteries

3 posts in this topic

I have recently bought a fishing boat and am in the proccess of winterizing. It has been awhile since I have owned one, so is it better to pull the batteries and store them in my basement or is it better to keep them in the boat and maintained on the on-board charger? They are Interstate deep-cycle marine batteries. Just wondering what the best case scenario would be.

I pull my starting battery which I do not have hooked to a charger. I have two batteries for the trolling motor which are hooked to the on board charger and I just leave them in place with the charger plugged in. I get a lot of years out of these batteries using this method.

As long as you can charge them it doesn't matter much.

I take mine out because the boats get stored where theres no power. Its also nice to have a few deep cycles and a power inverter around in case of a power outage.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Crazy birds!  Seen 2 jakes that would putt and cut like hens, a little deeper sound of course, and would talk back to me and Abi.  The Tom was absolutely quiet and disinterested.   Been along time since birds were this quiet.  Tough to make moves.  Probably just better to sit tight and wait.   Good luck.
