yep thats right our bilge pump seams to be zapping the batteries dead so for now the car charger is on there while hooked upto shore power.

but looking for something simple to put the batteries to full charge when were not on the boat saves spending more cash on batteries that last less than six months

Any wind or Solar power would be a trickle charge, unless spending £100s

Solar is rated in milliamps, while a car charger would start at 2 amps. Charging capacity

Wind and Solar are ideal to keep the battery Topped up so to speak.

yes Ian mate we do have shore power at the yard and is currently connected we have got a car battery charger charging the batteries on a timer 2hours on 2 hours off. should be ok but was thinking how much it would cost to get a charger fitted to the boat.
