Thanks. I did go with the 60HP Tohatsu. For the batteries, im going with Duracell High CCA Marine and Deep cycle flooded batteries. Trolling motor battery is offset in the front hatch. Batteries are made by Penn, same company thst manufacturers Deka and the batteries for West Marine. Alternator charges the cranking battery. Going with an onboard dual bank battery charger as well for ease of use and maintenance.Looks great! Did you go with the 60 Tohatsu? Also what is your battery setup going to be? I still have like 3 months until mine starts. There are not currently many advents out there so I will be closely following any updates from new owners!
