The above would make lead-acid batteries more robust, with the added advantage that there's no acid to spill.

Sulfation is accelerated by fast charging, like a car alternator. It can be reversed using an electronic desulfator that pulses the plates. Since
solar power and wind generators are more like a trickle charger this problem is less of an issue in a yacht unless the engine is used constantly.

It sounds very impressive.. I do want to make my batter system robust so I will try this way and hope it works..
I have got the required stuff and now it is time to setup.. Really very excited..

Great, let me know how they perform. I hope you watched the Bedini videos and got an idea of the refilling procedure before starting. The cleaning stage is important.
