    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.

    and the draw of the bait pump?

    I'll have to get back with that next week. I left the boat in the garage back home.

    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!
