Re: boat batteries

Answer..None. Have two seperate batteries for starting and trolling motor. There are duel purpose batteries out there, but they are a poor comprimise. There are also several issues doing so. The biggest being do you want to run the battery low with the trolling motor than try to start the gas motor?

Re: boat batteries

I have been using an Everstart Maxx 29 from Walmart for years. Never had any issues, and I used one battery to do both (starting and running the trolling motor).
