Dual batteries for trolling motor

Any recommendations on going with a series or parallel 12v system vs 24v...
I'll have three batteries onboard.
Two designated for accessories, and trolling motor. The other, strictly for motor cranking.

It'll be my first boat setup like this...
I'm used to changing leads when my battery dies...
Or else just callin' it quits...

I think a series setup would drain them alot slower right...

Thanks fellas.

Yeah Tom. I've been using the 5speed ones on my previous boats... Maybe the switch to variable is my ticket to happiness...
24v too.
I know what your screamin' about current flow. Been there, done that... I've been in some spots where a 40lb on the fastest speed wouldn't even get me through! Live and Learn.

Thanks again guys....
