Have you checked your 12v system lately, humidity on the sailboat causes things to deteriorate a little faster. I noticed some white powder flake build up on one terminal and a little rust on the starter end. Also one of my Jeeps wouldn't start the other day, I hadn't driven it in a long time and had to clean the connections from the battery to the starter to get it to start. I hit everything with corrosion block and all is working well right now.

Thanks for the info Tex, a good book to get is: "Living on 12 Volt with Ample Power". I loaned mine to an electrician friend and will post the author when I get it back.

I wondered about this when I first read this thread so I googled it and marked this page.
Battery Desulfation - Storage
It's something I've wanted to try on a couple of old batteries but haven't got around to it yet.
Thanks Uncle Joe that page was quite interesting.
