Does anyone have any pictures of how they mounted the battery for a fish finder.

12V 10Ah Werker SLA Battery
Waterproof container from Target
3A inline fuse off of the POS Terminal of the battery
Marine Power Plug (lexeled around the pulg for extra watertightness)
2-Way power switch (lexeled around the switch for extra watertightness)
Battery box is accessed through the front hatch
I'm running a Humminbird 383C and have logged in about 40hrs on the initial battery charge. I'm trying to see how many hours I can get out of one charge before re-charging. I'm still showing 12V on the battery, after the initial charge I was showing 12.6 volts

It's sealed. Why not? Of course the battery is stored outside of the boat when not in use.

Which hatch is that? If it is the rear hatch are you able to still use your round waterproof container still?
