As can be seen by the pictures, I didn't get away from the boat much. I measured the battery voltage this morning and one battery was 100% dead, reading just 10V instead of over 12V; probably caused by a single dead cell. Another battery read significantly lower than the others so I was off to Island Waterworld with the rejects and $400 later I had two new batteries as replacements. Once they were installed and hooked up I once again had to run the engine for hours in order to charge the cells, but was rewarded with a system that, after resting, held 12.75V at a full charge - Yippee!
