Going to put a access hatch just above the DB case, also found a battery thats the size and amps needed. Will make this work one way or another

Better check with the designers about how big a hatch you can put. The area you want to put the hatch in seems structural.

I actually store a small pack of batteries there too. I access the pack through the holes in the bulkhead. My small pack is probably nothing compared to the one you have in mind.

I was intending to brace that area and between the bulk heads under mast partner area. Just need a opening big enough to clear the smallest side of the battery, then flip the battery up and in to the case. Sounds easy !!! I hope it is.

Sounds good to me but I'm not the designer. Is this a watertight hatch? A lot of wash comes over the deck in a good chop. Oh and don't forget to provide some means of tying that battery down.

Do you have pictures? I'd love to see them.

This will cost you a fortune but would be cool.

Interesting. Anyone ever see a good review on them? How long willl it run on a charge? Corrosion resistance? Durability? At those prices they better be rock solid! Lot of pitch in the prop for a trolling motor! More like an electric outboard.
