53 foot Navigator Pilothouse. The Golf Carts are the GC25's which are the equivalent to the Trojan T125 I think. Those 12 are his house bank. 2 of the 8D's are for his thruster(s) and the 8D's are for starting the engines. I am not sure if those 3 8D's will all be in parallel or one for each engine and one for the generator. I just loaded it in our F150. Poor truck did not like it at all.

They have been good for us. I am going to have so much fun. The bad part is my back has been jacked up the last 3 or 4 days and is jsut starting to get better. Hopefully this doesn't hurt it worse. Luckily I think his boat has a roomy engine room with stairs down to. There isn't ladders or weird/impossible spots to get to. I have installed some batteries in some yachts that were the biggest PITA. It is like they built the boat around the batteries and said "hey, it isn't like we are going to have to replace them. Some poor marine mechanic will, haha".

Well get them installed. I am going to just come out and say it. I hate batteries. Especially big one's that weight 150 pounds that have to be put in boxes in an engine room that only has 4 feet of height. All hunched over stuffed into a corner trying to lift a huge battery sucks. And this was a lot easier boat to install in then most.
