for your trolling motor batteries. I'd not use a DC for a main motor cranking battery. Not good for them. DP, yes. DC, no.

Of course, this all depends on the size of the main motor, too. If it's any Opti or similar, then you need a DP or cranking battery with 1000MCA.

That's the point...the Stealth guy is telling me that you CAN use a deep-cycle battery for starting, as long as it's correctly rated. So your 1000 cranking amp example should work well, according to their tech support guy. He told me that many of their customers are using these MAXX-29 deep-cycle Walmart batteries for start batteries. I think he said they have about 880 cold cranking amps.

Your mileage may vary, but apparently there are a number of people just exactly what we're talking about...with excellent results.
