I have since managed to go through all of the wiring and install a galvanic isolator so I am more confident that the system is wired correctly and does not have any stray current etc. This can and often does equate to a bilge pump or blower fan not spinning as rapidly as designed, essentially creating a potentially dangerous situation. If lighter wire was used, you'll see a higher voltage drop due to the thinner wires. Alternate Dual Battery Configuration An alternative approach that is not as flexible but is simpler to install and operate is shown below. Keep pair for motors and pair for electronics and two bait wells. To solve the battery drain, I added a battery cut-out switch to the boat.
