I have a V700, though I didn't put a battery in the bow. I would agree with SD that you need to have engine charging capability for the battery. My setup uses 4ga wire for the feed from the battery selector switch, to the circuit breaker, which I mounted in the V-berth. That is also where I have the solenoid for the dual switches (up/down at helm, up at bow). From there, it goes to two terminal posts in the anchor locker, where the windlass is then connected (that way, if I have to remove the windlass, it's right there).

So far, I have been quite pleased with the performance of the V700 on my boat, which displaces just under 2 tons.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
