    Better off to use 3 batteries. 2 deep cycle for trolling motor wires for 24v. And 1 cranking battery for engine.
    Charging a deep cycle battery is a different procedure than charging a cranking battery. You must use a deep cycle battery charger for deep cycle batteries. Running longer cables for the engine would require bigger gauge wire and I think would be harder on the starter and the charging system of the engine. The accesories should be run off the deep cycle batteries as they tend to last longer .
