I do have an AGM compatible charger now, but thanks for the head’s up.

That said, I actually never had to charge the batteries between boat uses last season with the ones I was running, though I also was on the water several times a week, so they never really sat long in between uses. When we were on the water, we’d run the boat a lot in the morning, and then often sit and laze for 2-4 hours with the stereo running without issue into the afternoon when the 8 million crazies would arrive.

Having no real AGM experience, will I find this to be different using them vs. traditional wet cells? Will they need more regular charging beyond what my alternator is capable of if used similarly to my current batteries?
