Last season we slept on the boat for one night. I was concerned about the battery lasting the night and still starting the motor the next day.
I used a battery operated light that had a suction cup to attach it.
When I woke up, I found the D batteries had gone flat through the night.
This weekend we plan on sleeping over for two nights, with cruising in-between sleeps.
My question is, will the battery sustain the anchor light all night and still start the motor the next day?
I am assuming the boat was designed to do this, but I am paranoid I will have a flat battery in the morning.
I have solar panels to charge the battery if necessary.
