Hi Ray, it would be greatly appreciated if you could let us know what capacity your old single & new dual battery setups were/are (AH or mAH, etc).

The reason that I am interested is because my Mariette is a fore & aft schooner, the winches will be fighting some big direct loads most of the time (unlike a square rigger where there is some balance across the braces).

At the moment, I have 4 batteries installed :

- 2 x 2200 mAH 11.1V (3s) LiPo's diode-combined in parallel for the twin motors
- 1 x 2200 mAH 7.2V (2s) LiPo for the 2 x RMG sailwinches
- 1 x 2200 mAH 7.2V (2s) LiPo (with 6V regulator) for the Rx / rudder servo / jib servo.

From the sound of your experience, I might be better to go for more capacity on the sail winch battery ?

PS : Thanks for your posts / pics / vids - they keep my enthusiasm going !

I have finally finished planking the deck (644 individual pieces of 4mm x 1mm limewood), and am now working on the deckhouses).

Kind Regards,

Peter D.
