    Relocating my start battery to under the console. Run is about 12' or so, and Yamaha spec's 2 gauge cable for the run. What can I put under the console to use for as breaker to run to the rear of the boat safely?

    Also, what is the best way to run the cable to the motor, direct from battery or to a set of lugs on the transom?

    Standard battery isolator switch under the console, close to the battery.
    Wires always connected directly to the outboard and switch under console.

    Thanks Brett, that's actually how I wound up going. Blue sea breaker.

    Also if it helps anyone else out there, the wire spec for the engine right from Yamaha is that 2 gauge is good for runs up to 22'.
