My biggest fear is the batteries running out and being unable to start the boat.

Well, obviously it's not my biggest fear. A hailstorm of nuclear missiles raining down on eastern Hertfordshire, leaving the world in a smouldering ruin and civilization completely extinct, would also ruin my day. But boat batteries come second.

I'm going to get some of those SmartGauge and SmartBank systems fitted and hopefully PV panels to trickle charge as well. But....oh the cost....


  1. I'm just about to fit a Smartbank and Smartgauge on a new 62ft narrow boat for the owner. Have fitted the Smartgauge before, but it will a first for the split charging system.

  2. Just received the estimate from Calcutt for both. Eye watering.
