I installed a SE 100, 24v on its own charger on my Sabreline 36. I have not regretted it. It has plenty of thrust to move the boat in all conditions. I would not go bigger. When I hit the...

Oil

I have CAT 3116 diesels--vintage 1994. The manual specifies single viscosity 30wt or 40wt, and explains briefly that the multi-viscosity oils have undesireable additives for this motor.

Thanks. The windlass motor breaker I found. It's a push-pull on off, I would guess at least 90A, possibly 135A. It cuts the power to the windlass entirely.

As for the new switches, does it...
