    You'd be taking a chance of running down your cranking battery. If you're mostly fishing then it would be dangerous to do so. If you're mostly running then you might get by with it.:smile2:

    Put in a perko battery switch. Run on all, switch to acc battery when you fish.

    Pay attention to the LARGE instructions on the battery switch which tell you not to switch to "OFF"while the engine is runnining.:smile2: I never touch mine when the engine is running period.
