I plan to throw a smart charger on there today and see what happens with the batteries.

Good advice all around. I've been suspicious of the LEWCO since getting the boat as it's such a basic approach to battery maintenance. My tech lovingly referred to these as 'dial a boil' - which didn't help my confidence.

The plan is to update/upgrade systems when needed, the charger was already on the list so I'll likely replace with the ProMariner 1250 and be done with it. Step one in a larger battery bank project.

Amazon has the charger and the helm remote for less than WM and way less than Fisheries.
