Starter or House Battery?

Hi Gang,

I''m redesigning the electrical system for our 28 year old sailboat to have a separate house and starter battery.

Everything I''ve read states that the starter battery is connected to *only* the starter.

Question: which battery (house or starter) is typically used to power the engine instruments, fuel pump, etc.?

thanks in advance for your help!
