I have two batteries... one for the main operation of the boat, the second designated specifically for the radio/ amps.
How do I charge both?

Connect them parallel like in a diesel truck.

You may have to upgrade your alternator.

There is one, but it we'll have to see if it works when I get the new cables.....
