I think I developed a formula, 6 hours of maintenance for every hour of useTell me about it.
Went to move the boat over today for winter storage. One battery was bloated, shorted internally, taking out the other starting battery.
So two brand be size 27 starting batteries for the Carver this am.
Now she's resting inside.
I had to move the boat to the marina. Did not want to take any chance of the boat engines dying in the river. Current isn't bad right now, and I could drop the anchor, but who needs that hassle?Out of curiosity, since you're putting it away for the year, why not wait until Spring to get 2 new, fresh batteries?
I think a size 27 is what my tractor takes. Cost me $130 last week for a new one.
THE SIZE OF OUR TOYS DOES NOT CHANGE THE WORK INVOLVED TO KEEP THEM FIT!This time of year is busy. Lol. I pulled my boat from the slip 3 weeks ago and hauled it an hour drive home to put it away for the winter. It might not be a sailboat or carver cruiser but the work is still there. I already pulled the three batteries and stored them in the heated garage. I just need to clean up the water line scum and back it in under the carport on the shop. I love having the carport. It's all along one side of my 36x40 shop. Makes a great storage for the boat in the winter and the snowmobiles in the summer.
I am always looking for a boat.1947 16' Chriscraft rocket, completely restored. They called it the rocket because at the time it was the worlds fastest production runabout-35 mph. Chrysler crown-6 with velvet drive. Looking for one?
