I want to move my battery from the tea some of the boat to the center console. The positive and negative are not long enough to make the run. What is the best way to wire this?

Determine the length of the run. Then go to one of the DC cable sites to determine the cable gauge. (Most sites require a "round trip) So if the distance is 10 feet, use 20. Just remember you will be buying 10 feet of red and 10 of black or yellow. If the battery is side mounted, it is relatively easy, if post mounted, you will have to have them made up. Search for Custom Marine battery cables and take your pick. Remove the old Positive battery connection at the cut off switch. If there is Negative buss bar connect it there, if not, you will need to make or purchase one.
