Dual cycle marine battery thicker plates than a car battery although car batteries work fine left mine on the mooring for two weeks auto bilge pump no probs numax have a battery condition light showing green when heathy never carried one but a jump starter would be a good back up.dual cycle because they discharge differently for each application slowly for the electronics, as required for the cranking amps.best get you out of jail is an aux motor start her up get out of trouble think about how your going to get main engine started my 25 Suzuki needs a partial strip down if the pull start breaks. starting is aided on four strokes because they have a de-compression system anyway so in theory a 150 shouldn't be a problem I think I would give it a go to find out though before i had to

No..it just feels like that sometimes
My point was just that the backup battery is there for when I do something stupid. I'm reasonably confident I'd get away with one battery but I think it's worth having the backup

Yeh but guys. This guy doesn't have a bilge pump and doesn't leave it on a mooring. You say 'this is my set up' in the same way as when someone posts which RIB most people say buy what I have...

Ok he doesn't say much about his rib or where or what he's doing with it. So we are all trying to cover the main aspects of battery and the draws there of. Ok!!

I'd agree with that by the time the guy gets all the 'extra' equipment that's been recommended he won't have anything left to fill the tank.
& will need a bigger boat to carry it all! He's new to boating & probably like most is on a steep learning curve so probably better to keep it simple to begin with then add the extras & redundancy later as he gets more confident & wants to go further afield
Only my opinion of course

Hit the the nail on the head
Nothing fancy on it, lights, gps, fishfinder, engine start is all I have.
Ribbed a lot before but first time owner
Won't be on a mooring either, doubt i'll use the electrics much without the engine running for too long either
