Good deal. Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best. Now as long as everything stays charged you've got your issues solved.

If your charger said the battery was at 100% and the battery wouldn't turn over your engine, I'd be considering replacing the charger. The Genius wouldn't be the charger of choice IMO. Is this your vessel's primary/only charger?

Glad you were able to solve the problem. Now it's time to go boating. Hope this is the end of your problems.
