RE: Battery installations




Very strange. I come from power boat roots (please don't hold that
against me, I got here as soon as I could! ;;->) and the constant
cautions about venting the engine compartment before starting is where
my concern was born. That coupled with the inherent danger from
electrical sparks in the same compartment seems like a recipe for
disaster.
