  1. Talking with my neighbour in the marina on Saturday and he casually mentioned he was delayed leaving for Fiji as his lithium batteries had swolllen up and he was waiting to get them looked at. He said he thought that there was no charge controller on them. Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen so I asked him to disconnect his cables and perhaps move his boat away from mine. Perhaps I should also move mine away from his?

  2. Same for when someone wants to use the head. Way easier.

  3. Yep! Sounds like over charging. I've seen a couple of installs without any control in yachts that have come from offshore.. It's crazy. I re-iterate, there is, in IMO, no such thing as a drop in lithium! And batts without BMS at all should not be used anywhere.

  4. Of course, that's exactly what you'd try first, then if it continued to deteriorate sea anchor or drogue. I've been known to heave to going to weather 25kn just while I cooked dinner. For anyone who hasn't tried it the sudden improvement in comfort is astounding.
