Im not an expert on the topic but ill do my best, theres either starting, deep-cycle or dual purpose. The batteries have lead plates inside, starting batteries have alot of thin plates which give alot of power in short bursts to start an engine, these are cheap and dont take well to being run flat (hard on the plates), a deep-cycle has fewer plates that are alot thicker so can withstand being slowly drained hundreds of times, but doesnt offer much starting power, these cost heaps and have two sets of terminals. The dual purpose is kind of inbetween, still costs alot, and has two sets of terminals. I think the best situation is one of each, but if space is a premium the dual purpose isnt a bad option. Especially for me as I assume this big screen will draw a fair bit of power.

Yep I understand both, ex - marine electronics tech, good choice!

Late update, but I picked the trailer up from glav on thursday afternoon, and totally underestimated the work that would be involved with getting it assembled post galv. Regardless we got it assembled and the boat sitting on it before I took it home to fit up the center console into the hull. It turned out to be a veeeeery late night. But is all looking good. Its now at the boat shop having the engine fitted as we speak Wacko

Jason at Active Outboards works super fast and got the motor fitted up quick, really happy with how it looks on there, the trailer launched and retrieved like a dream, (the ramp was very calm and quite steep so not the ultimate test). The sea-trial went ok, had a bit of porpoising so we are looking to remedy that first. 3 guys standing on one side of a 14 foot boat without it flipping is very impressive.

Did this to the old man boat, got Nautech Marine to extend legs on the bait board. Works a treat as everything at hand whilst fishing, and covers dead space from petrol tanks. Looks like the birds love sitting on it as well.

Also stuck a trademe T top on it, which gives a great amount of hand holds. Boat works a treat.

Man she looks good on the water.

Love the look of that bait board MIDJIT, nicely done.

What are you thinking for baitboard Marknado? And additional rod holders?

You could put a lot more than three people on the side of that boat before you capsize it. It's going to be a little machine when done.
