I am trying to lighten up my little 14' flat-bottom a little.
Yamaha F30-F115 Specs call for a battery that is rated for 380 CCA. I currently have a 41 pound Interstate marine battery that is rated at 405 CCA. Are there lightweight batteries out there that will meet the specs for a outboard motor? Mine is only a F40 so I really doubt that it needs as much battery as a F115.
ATV Battery? The starter on my new F40 doesn't look any bigger than a ATV starter and ATV's run on a very lightweight battery. I have also seen small cars with tiny batteries. Even after alot of winching a ATV battery will still turn the motor over.
Anyone tried a a lightweight battery?
