[November 1, 2003]Light BrigadeShorepower would be an expensive luxury aboard a boat such as Boating's Scout Abaco 242 project boat. But by installing Guest's Sportsman's Power Center, a 15-amp battery charger, I was able to up the overnight comfort level without outrageous costs and complications. How? I plugged in at the dock. The charger allowed me to run all my 12-volt devices-lights, freshwater sink, stereo, and so forth-without fear of draining my batteries. It measures 7.5"-by-11.5"-by-2.7", so it easily mounts in the battery compartment.
