Bat­tery Check­list

Saltwater Sportsman - - Float Plan / Boat Talk -

1. Keep bat­ter­ies fully charged to pro­long their life.

2. Se­cure bat­ter­ies in ded­i­cated boxes, or fas­ten with straps or plates, to avoid dam­age from jostling in a chop.

3. Never use wing nuts to se­cure bat­tery ca­bles to the ter­mi­nals; use stain­less-steel nuts with lock wash­ers in­stead.

4. Carry the ap­pro­pri­ate wrench or socket on board to tighten loose ca­bles or dis­con­nect a bat­tery on the wa­ter.

5. Un­less bat­ter­ies are main­te­nance-free, check wa­ter lev­els rou­tinely.

6. Store bat­ter­ies in cli­mate-con­trolled spa­ces to pre­vent dam­age.
