i recently purchased a sears gamefisher 14ft tri hull with a 9.9 hp evinrude that starts right up. i have built to livewells so i can keep live bait.the boat is sound and does not leak.i am planning on adding a fishfinder but have no idea on how to do the wiring electrical work.what do i need to purchase i was rthinking a marine battery would be powerful enough.but i also have to power the navigational lights.my other question was that i am mostly going to be doing saltwater fishing.i want to know how far out i can go with a 9.9 hp with two people and very little gear.mostly going to be fishing out of key biscayne like how far out would i have to go to get on some fish?fishing on card sound road is also a possibility. any help or suggestions are very appreciated.

With a 14 ft Sears Gamefisher I wouldn't venture to far . This is a Alu Boat is mainly for protected water .(Lakes)Make sure you know the rules of the road and watch for the wakes of other boats.Get all the required safety equipment !As for the fishfinder ,just get a battery ,fuses ,wiring etc .It isn't to difficult to install a fish finder .Do you have any boating experience ?

depending on how big your balls are will determine how far out the sears gamefisher 14ft tri hull can go.

Just try to use common sense when operation any vessel. If a small craft advisory out in effect don't try to chance it.

The wireing is easy.
You also need switches because you dont need lights on in the day light.
Make sure its a marine grade battery and can be deep charged,rember you dont have an alternator to recharge the battery.
