Hi Duncan,
Glad to see you getting good use from your boat, I have been following some of your postings from time to time.
I dread to think where you might sail in -30F !. Seriously, 6 volt batteries in a 54 are a no brainer you will never get the ampage stick with 12 volt wet cell deep cycle that you can find easily enough in the Caribbean.
If you are talking to Tom please pass on our regards.
Fair winds,

I would like any input on a new battery plan for the A54 I have just started a solar program for a cabin and I have been advised that 6 volt 200 ah Trojans are the way to go for this off grid mountain cabin. The vendor is telling me these are low maintenance and will withstand even -30F temps. It would seem that this might be a good choice for the boat as well? I do not recall the size of the 12V batteries. I searched for a file or link to other posts that would also cover all aspects of the boats electrical system. I would appreciate any suggestions.
