Its time to change out the batteries. been doing lots of reading on the subject but I am really looking for advice from ppl here, and what they have done. the last owner did some funky rewiring so have my job cut out for me to get it all back to stock. thanks
the boat is mostly stock at this moment save for the basic necessities. car stereo, chart plotter. radio. no fancy lighting yet. 50hp Honda. I’m thinking of going with 2 deep cell batteries. the Honda does not draw much on start up and matching batteries are easier for charging. not sure the size or make I should go with though?
We have a Yandina Combiner, two golf cart batteries for the house bank and a dedicated starting battery on Windspiration (also carry a jump start pack usually) and it has been great. Even with the fridge running we can go for about 3 days before the house bank gets to 50% which is the lowest you should take it.
thanks Windspiration. I’m hoping to be at the dinner on Friday so maybe I can ask you more about it then.

Welcome to MYCBC
Welcome to the home of the Macgregor Yacht Club of British Columbia. We are a group of present and past Macgregor Yacht and Tattoo Yacht owners. Most of our members are in British Columbia, Canada, although we do have members from other places in Canada and the USA.
We organize on and off the water activities for owners of Macgregor and Tattoo boats; regattas, cruises, flotillas and our annual all member get together ‘MacRendezvous’. Members share tips, ideas, and hard-come-by knowledge about how to maximize the joy of owning these wonderfully affordable boats.
The basic, free sections of this website is open for all to enjoy.
You can register for free to have additional access to public forum where you can communicate with the club and can be included in emails that the club sends to members and registered users related to upcoming activities.

The modest, annual membership fee is $65 for the first year (which includes a club burgie and welcome package) and $35 per year thereafter. Membership in the club is recognized at marine stores and marinas for discounts on supplies and moorage. We also have negotiated discount insurance coverage for members.
