Is it a new boat or SH? If SH (I'm assuming it is) it will have had a battery fitted somewhere, find the space & fit the highest CCA battery you can fit in the space. You can never have too much battery
. If new, is the boat rigged? i.e. engine fitted, cables, fuel line, loom all in place? if so, find the battery cables & put the battery on the end, same applies about size.
If the boat is in good order, the fuel will stay in the fuel lines & system, & the electrickery will stay in the battery & cables, no need to worry about mixing the two. If you have fuel leaks, poor electrical contacts etc, it's a different kettle of lobsters.
