    Alex_Brower I Love!

    Right now I have my 13' Gheenoe setup with an 8hp Mercury/Mariner tiller. I have converted my livewell into a battery/switch box, i run my nav lights, spotlight, etc off the battery. The problem is that my battery is constantly having to be recharged after each use, is there anyway to charge this battery off of a motor of this size and how?

    From what I remember, you have to change the stator for the one that's used with electric start but yes it can be done. Only expect about 4 to 6 amps.

    Also the flywheel must have magnets.

    No matter what you will still need to recharge your battery after a good use, or atleast hook it up to a trickle chager to keep it maintained. Might be worth looking into a bigger battery if it isn't lasting long enough.
