@Mako, you are correct as the saying "Every Road leads to Rome" the use to say. The temperature in the engine room is not friendly for the location of battery banks. The engine starter bank can be placed very low and close to the aluminum plating where hull meets the keel to to be able to harvest the kool-skin effect. General the generator is close by and without long and heavy gauge cable run can be hooked to the same bank. The battery house bank I would mount close to inverter, isolation transformer, 12 vdc or 24 vdc master panel and the ac panel to keep wire and cable gauges manageable and locate it outside of the engine room. Edwin seems to build the new boat in aluminum, which is a super boat building material and has to consider an isolated ground in the 12vdc or 24vdc system and very important the ac shore power. The engine wiring needs to be isolated ground including the alternator. This is a another can of worms :-). You are right in fewer batteries are better and lithium is the way to go and including all the weight saving beside the use of most all the storage capacity.
