[QUOTE=hellosailor;673705]Oriental-
"I have run 2/0 cables from the windlass directly to the house bank, with a 110 amp breaker in the feed."

Thanks for pointing this out,I should have been more specific. Since the circuit breaker would be 4-5' away from the battery I would put a fuse, such as terminal fuse by blue seas, within 7" of the battery. A welded shut breaker would be a nightmare.
