Program activity: Ron from interstate batteries spoke about a new battery coming out this spring, The "High cycle life" for marine use. He instructed us to use a maintenance charged over periods of no use. Discussed proper charging techniques and fielded questions from the club. He distributed information packets to attendants. Don't add acid to the battery cells only distilled water. The acid does not evaporate so only the water is needed to refill a low cell. 

Tips Tactics and tech: Joe advised us to put a master switch on your boats electronic accessories to stop voltage drain. he also showed us how to tie a seaguar knot used to tie 2 lined together. Joe also provided all attendees with fizzing needles and instructions on how to fizz bass. Joe did a presentation on how to maintain reels and provided us with brushes to do the maintenance.
