I got a tin boat with a 20hp outboard and 1 sometimes 2 batteries.  Is there a small low power 12v aerator that lasts?  Pump style might not last too long on the battery.   Wait n bait on anchor,  of drift mostly.  So, the 6 amp charger aint gonna be on much.  Worse comes to worse......  Outboard has pull cord and is easy to start.


This can be freshwater only.  Salt n galvanic potential do not mix for long.........


MY best option has been the cheapie frabil baby bubbles with 2 AA lasted awhile, and is still alive after cleaning rust off of battery connectors....


Seems they all die early, some just cost more..........

The Marine Metals B15  " Power bubbles" pump  that Lateral Line suggested seems to be the standard. Lots of great reviews for it at Amazon and elsewhere . That said, I've used one of the Fabril portable  that runs on D cell batteries on and off for years. It really runs for a long time on a set of rechargeables.
