Battery plan - update

The previous owner left us two uninstalled 200 Ah AGM batteries which he claimed to be almost new. We were hoping to install them and trying hard to find an adequate place for those big and heavy batteries. But before making the decision and starting the work, we decided to buy a battery analyzer and check if they're really in a good condition and worth to install. It turned out to be a good idea. The batteries are unfortunately almost dead and needs to be replaced.

It's bad and good news at the same time. Bad because batteries are expensive to replace and good because now we can be more flexible with the size, capacity and placement. The new plan is to put a house bank of 3 x 100Ah batteries and a starter battery of 70Ah in the engine room and/or aft cabin right next to the engine room bulkhead. This would make the weight distribution more even, all batteries would be close to eachother, so we can use shorter cables.
