I moved 3 batts to my cabin and replaced all the wiring with home runs. It is the best way but most expensive. You could use something like this<< http://bluesea.com/category/9/38
but it will leave a connection that could cause trouble in the future. It could come lose, get corroded or something....I do everything overkill though. good luck.
Which every power post that you use, try to install them in a dry area , coat them with liquid electrical tape and keep them tight. Don't forget when installing Battery's and connections to throw away your wing nuts and use nylon lock nuts to keep your connections tight.
Remember the longer the run the lower the gauge battery wire needed to maintain full power throughout the run. I moved my batteries from the console next to the motor to the flip flop seat. I rewired the battery cables with #1 gauge wire, pricy but worth it.
AJ looking at your rebuild thread. again nice job. where did you get those stainless scuppers? and do they have that 1 way flapper in them?. mine are plastic and could use an upgrade after iam done with this battery deal
Number 2 batt cables and forget about extending cables in a 23ft boat. It's a bad idea...and a terminal connection like that is just another possible problem... I've been there and seen it... Just buy the cables, crimp the terminal end then heat shrink seal them the 5200 under the shrink tubing..
We need to get together on the Penn reels thing..or just buy XD50 oil at Barnacle Bills..for those reels.
bob i was gonna call ya,so we could close the deal, but forgot it was easter weekend. i didnt wanna bother ya. so your saying i should just cut the eyelets off the merc cables and crimp (solder) them to new cables to the batts?
