Hello Jeff, I love your videos and I've even bought a bag to support your channel. I'm adding a Lofrans Tigres Windlass 1200w 12V, (20 year old NOS) - can I mount the battery near the unit to shorten the cables? I have a Victron ArgoFet Isolator with three outputs and plan to have a dedicated charger as well. I haven't purchased the batteries yet, currently running house and engine on lead acid and plan to upgrade over time. Any thoughts? Trying to keep the project affordable. Thanks! - Wes
Thanks for reaching out and for your support of PYS, always glad to assist a fellow boater. Totally feasible to mount the battery closer to the windlass, it helps keep cable size and costs down. Couple of key points to consider:
Good luck with the projects aboard S/V Stoic and happy sailing.
