The motor on my new Gheenoe does Not have electric start so I do not currently have a battery. What type of battery do I need run my bait pump and bilge pump? More importantly, what is the best way to recharge this battery? Thanks.
I would get a Deep-Cycle Marine Battery. The Optima D51 Yellow-top is the best option, because it only weighs 25 pounds. If you go with a smaller SLA 12-volt, you run the risk of losing power half way through the day. Plus, some of those high capacity pumps chew through power!
