I have a 2005 GS201 fun deck and am adding a trolling motor.

Does the receptacle at the front of the boat have a separate circuit or is it part of the utility circuit? if so, what is the best battery to run the trolling motor as well as the electronics? I still need to start the engine after trolling, too, so there needs to be enough power left for that.

    I believe I can answer my own question. The boat has a Optima DM34 battery that I read is the solution for this. It is supposed to serve as a trolling motor and starting and electronics battery. I just need to get an AGM battery charger and keep it charged up. Hopefully, the problem is solved.
