RE: Battery installations




Venting is essential during charging of a flooded battery. My battery box
has a vent on the top of the lid. I intend to remove the cushion and the
settee storage access board above the battery while charging. Hydrogen gas
produced during charging is lighter than air, unlike propane, and will
escape out of the cabin by way of the companionway hatch. I also won't be
cooking, smoking, etc. while I charge the battery.

Aren't batteries supposed to be mounted where they can be vented to the
outside?
