I put the battery on her, and the motor was only just turning over, i was just about to remove the plugs to turn her over and free it up after sitting then i remembered I had the jump leads with me, so with it connected to a new heavy duty battery on the car she started in a flash at idle didn’t think it would start and idle so easily, let’s hope it lasts..

I use a ctek charger on my boat batteries and they are great chargers. I have the ctek sockets fitted to both batteries permanently and just connect the charger plug to whichever battery needs a top up.

The ctek chargers are splash proof (IP65) not waterproof. On a rib I would pop the charger inside a console or seat pod while charging to protect it from heavy rain.
