I would say this would work fine for your situation. My batteries are 12 feet from the engine and no problem. Good luck and have fun!!!! GoatBoy

Answer

The starter switch should be connected to a solenoid near the battery that will close the circuit of the heavier gage wire. the solenoid would use lighter wire and should be big enough to handle the higher amperage to the starter. Farley

Answer

TECHNICALLY 4GA MAY BE ADEQUATE AS SOME CHARTS MAY SHOW HOWEVER WHEN THE RUN LENGTH IS CONSIDERED AS AN ESTIMATE, LONG TERM USE, CORROSION AND POSSIBLY LESS THAN PERFECT CRIMPS FACTOR IN AS WELL. I WOULD GO WITH 1GA AND ENSURE MY TERMINAL CRIMPS WERE GOOD, USE MARINE GRADE HEAT SHRINK TO SEAL AND THEN USE AN ANTI CORROSION GREASE ON THE BATTERY AND ENGINE CONNECTIONS. ( ANTI CORROSION GREASE SHOULD BE USED ON JUST ABOUT ALL MARINE CONNECTIONS AS I HAVE FOUND THAT CORROSION AND LOOSE CONNECTIONS ACCOUNT FOR ABOUT 90% OF ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS) INSPECT AS A MATTER OF ROUTINE.

I bought this cable for a different purpose -- to run approximately 25 feet to an electric windlass. It has performed perfectly in that application.
