I just recived my new to me 2005 hunter, my house bank is a automotive 225 amps bank. With only usabe 120 amps after 3 hours of navigation i am all ready with low battery warning. My starter battery is below floor in front of the main head. In this place i only have space left for another blue top battery as i have installed there the water pump for the water maker. I cannot change this acomodation as i have a water pick up with filter allready done. If i change the battery below the navigation seat i can have 6 6volt battery with a capacity of aprox 420 amp, so i will have like 200 amp before recharging (i have a gen). So this will be like 6 hours of day navigation and like 4 hour at night (with shower water filter radio etc). Do you think if i make a rack below the floor in the bilge this is a good place to have additional bank? So i can enlarge the banks to 300 usable amps so i will charge battery only twice a day.? I only use my sailboat for max 48 to 36 (3 days) of navigation before i rest at anchor. How big is your house bank ?
