I have a 2004 298 SC. My marina left the batteries on with the bilge running and now they are dead.

How can you lift the electric hatch ??. Most boats have a place to hook on jumpers to lift the electric hatch

So you can start the engines. I opened up where the hole is for spraying a fire extinguisher under the seat but no way to reach the pin to disconnect the hydraulic hatch lift. Any ideas??.


There is no way to put jumpers through the fire extinguisher hole under the seat and see to attach to the batteries. What can I do ??

Old thread but I'll hop in here....



I would suspect that there is a jumper stud somewhere in the boat. Even the most incompetent marine mechanic would put one in with the electric hatch. Look next to the battery switches.


If that doesn't work find your battery disconnect switches. Unscrew them, there you will find your positive battery leads. Connect your jumper, and find a ground (use your outdrive if you have to).
