Also figured we needed an annoying video to go along with that.

I mentioned a few posts ago that I had to replace both batteries. I got two new batteries this past March and put them in the boat. I did not hook them up until it was time to start the motor. After we launched I attached the cables and appeared to have power. The radio worked, the lights worked etc. I tried the motor but all I got was a solenoid sound. No cranking power. I figured the bats need a charge so I put my charger on them for a day. Tried again, nothing. I took a close look at the terminals and found the + side was completely wasted. I hack sawed off the terminals and put new ones on. Things went well after that.
