Battery will not charge

NitzeyNitzey MemberPosts: 282 Deckhand
My boat is 16 years old.  It has two starting batteries and one devoted solely to the electronics.  I never had an issue with the electronics battery until now.  It will not charge.  At first I thought the brand new battery was defective, and had it replaced.  But the replacement also quickly lost charge.  I have had a lot of work done to get the engine and outdrive back up to snuff, but have no idea if this is related to the new problem.  Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about boat charging systems.
