I have a 24v Motor Guide that I want to put on my boat. I have a 16ft lightweight skiff. I can rig my 2, 12v batteries to be 24v to run, it but I have a starter on my Suzuki that is 12v. I want to avoid having to buy another 12v battery just to start the motor. Anyone have the same issue and have a solution? I'm open to ideas!

What about a 3 way battery switch? One that has batt 1, batt 2, and both? It could be rigged in series or parallel with a little work.

A small commercial battery will be cheaper than the switch, but either way it should be doable.

Like a lawn mower battery?

If you only hook the wires from starter to one batt it will only get 12V. So you might end up without enough juice to start motor.

Trollbidge will take care of that.
