Securing batteries

There remains a myriad of bits and pieces I'm trying to get done before Lady Jane leaves the yard at Fareham.

Securing batteriesHere you see the brackets and straps for securing the batteries.

Right now the line of 12 big 2 volt batteries, which comprise my 24 volt battery bank, are not really secured at all.

I know it's only a short trip round to the River Itchen, in Southampton, from Fareham, but it would not be a good thing to have those big old lead/acid batteries sliding about the fiddley deck in the event we get a big swell or something.

All it now needs is a bzzzt or two of the welder and the brackets will be in place. The straps will then ensure the batteries are kept snug in their place.
