Currently I own a Seaswirl outbored, and I am having problems with the Battery, Whenever i dont use the boat for a week or so, i will come back to the boat, and the engine will refuse to start, unless we jumpstart it.

we bought a portable jumpstarter which works, but is an inconvinent.

When i leave the all lights etc are turned off,

also, if i unscrew all accesories from the battery it tends to fix the battery draining problem as well.

Any solutions that you guys can think of, or know the problem besides a crappy batery?

Chech the battery drain with a volt meter. set it on amps and keep checking it while you disconnect the various accessories until you find the culprite.
