Lithium Batter Upgrade: Before we leave Kemah, TX and begin sailing distant shores, we need a new bank of batteries and chose lithium batteries for our sailboat. It wasn't an easy choice, but after much study, we're happy to discover Rebel Batteries, a new lithium battery company here in Texas offering batteries, with a built-in BMS, at a great price! So we figured we'd invite the owner, Aric out to the boat and give them a try! I hope you enjoy this talk with Aric about lithium batteries!
Cheers, Matt.

We haven't finished the install, but when we do, we'll share a full review and opinion about the batteries. Here's Rebel Batteries website:

Who Are We?
We're the Fosters, and we just sold our house and purchased a sailboat, Cadence, a Catalina 387. We're on a journey to minimize our life, learn to live on a sailboat, and sail away.

In 2019, Matt quit his public education career of 15 years, and went full-time building his own business. Olivia is ready to explore the world, and so am I...but first, we have to save up, learn about sailing, and figure out a way to leave land.

We're sharing this journey with you in hopes that it'll bring you a smile, provide something helpful, and maybe give a bit of inspiration to live life on your terms - to explore your world.

Join us as we take this journey into the unknown, and share some laughs along the way.
