Re: Trolling motor and lead acid batteries for dingy..
I have two 65AH batts but only use one at a time unless we go sightseeing, If I take both it's a 3 hour tour. when I get around to it, I'll put them in a batt box and string them together so I'll have 210AH
I cut the connectors that came with the motor off and replace them with clamps like you'd get with jumper cables only smaller, takes <5 sec to switch batts
Also, each batt (group 24 ) fits neatly inside a Husky ( home depot ) tool bag so they're easy to move around
