I’m wondering where people have located their batteries on the BCC? As you know, the SML-built BCC’s have batteries located in the forward, starboard quarterberth. On my BCC, I expanded the battery bank, placing the house bank in the lazarette (I know, bad location!) and the dedicated engine starting bank in the forward, starboard quarterberth.
I am not happy with the house bank in the lazarette, as I have no doubt it adversely affects sailing performance, so I want to relocate those batteries, even if it means reducing the battery capacity.
I had thought about distributing batteries throughout the boat, but have recently learned that that is not a good idea because the temperatures are different at various locations which can have an adverse affect on battery life because of different charging regimes.
So, what have other people done?
