Hi I've recently bought a 30hp for my boat it is electric start on a tiller. Not quite sure what battery to get for it! I would also like to run a rule 360 bilge pump on my live bait well, I wouldn't run it continuously just for a few mins now and again. Would I need 2 separate batteries? I'd like to keep the amount of weight I'm carrying down as much as possible

I used to have a mariner 25 with electric start I ran it from a little Odyssey racing battery can't remember what model but it was one of their smallest ones. It would run my bravo pump enough to inflate the whole boat then start the engine all day. I don't know if the outboard charged it or not, I used to put it on charge before each trip.
