longwaterline is on a distinguished road
I agree the best bet is a separate starting battery dedicated to that one function. On Wave Dancer I have a separate G24 starting battery and two
G27 house batteries wired in parallel. Also have space for a third house G27 if I need the extra amp hours. The charging systems either shore power or engine based keeps the system topped off nicely. This the classic way to go although you see all kinds of arrangements and views out there on this.
