Anyone know if the mAH increases once AAs are linked so i'm useing the right numbers to compare.
My finder runs 200 mAH with no back light and 250 with it on ... they make 12v packs from 2000 - 4200mAH

Any decent size battery can go off like a bomb if it's short circuited or overcharged, it sounds like a very bad idea to use these in a marine environment.
I have said how I have them wired. All three are wired in parallel "all the red wires together, and all the black wires together". If you try to wire them in series, they will heat up and melt the wires, or explode! the charger that came with the RC car is a 5 hour charger. After a single 5 hour charge, I get 12 volts at the plug. I don't go into salt water with my yak, so I will have no issues with it. If you do, I would put it into a sealed box.
