Re: Battery mystery

No need to exchange the deep cycle battery for a start/deep cycle battery as long as the current battery is not defective. A deep cycle battery will easily start an outboard. In fact it will easily start an inboard diesel.

It definitely sounds like you have something going on with your wiring. With an outboard and single battery, you have a simple system so it should be easy to track down the issue.
