Default Battery Cable Size

Hey Folks,

I have an older 19' center console with a 75hp Johnson on it, and right now there is just a single battery setup sitting next to the motor.

I plan add another battery and move them up into the console, so I picked up a Perko battery switch. I know I have to basically rewire the whole setup, but I have a few questions:

1. What gauge wire do I need?
2. I have a new series 24 starting battery, what would be a good choice for my second battery?

Thanks in advance,
Chuckster

Thanks HotSpot... I took your advice and joined the Captain's Club, it's definitely money well spent.

There's a ton of info here, and everyone has been super helpful. It's the least I can do...

Thanks for everything,
