    Does anyone know if I run 2 batteries for my trolling motor would it hurt to have one hooked to my engine to start my 25 merc. I'd like to save the weight and only run 2 batt. I have a pull start in case it runs down. I would be running 2 PC 1200 oddessy batteries. I want use the minnkota 24v with 70 lbs thrust for when there's current and getting off the flat. Thanks

    not the best idea, better to have a dedicated starter, but you could wire one of the troller batteries as a back up starter battery

    It will not hurt anything to have starter wired to one of the batteries. IF trolling motor is upfront I'd rather have a smaller battery hooked up to starter and placed in the stern. Then you don't have to run all the wire from front to back.
