Default Second Battery Installer - Middle Peninsula

As indicated in the title, I'm looking for recommendations for a battery/electronics installer on the Middle Peninsula. I'd like to get a second battery installed in my boat. I could go to the Northern Neck or down to Yorktown/Newport News, but I don't want to go any further down.

Thanks in advance!

not trying to be negative but depending on what your after I'm guessing an isolated battery it's an easy do it yourself job & is or can be as simple as useing a ford type starter solenoid to isolate the 2nd battery when the ignition (the key) is on & the motor is running both batteries are beying charged & ignition off 2nd battery is isolated this is a no brainer & works great. if you wish pm me & ill explain in more detail

I'm not so worried about the electrical and mechanical aspects of the install, but the physical. I have back fusions, one total shoulder replacement, one needing it... etc. Getting down and working around in my center console feels like a bit too much.

Thanks though!

Called Swords today and they’re pretty backed up. I also talked to Mike and he’s going to come by tomorrow. Sounds like a good guy.
