  • Cutting a door under seats for battery relocation?

    Howdy,
    I am the new owner of a 1995 Angler 22' WA. There is a single battery at the stern starboard side box, the port side has the oil tank for the engine.

    Last week I got a couple group 24 DP batteries that I would like to install up front (to keep the stern light) somewhere. There appears to be quite a nice hollow spot with floor under the seats, thinking about cutting a hole in the front of each seat box for a battery and making a door out of smoked plexi, what kind of ventilation does the compartment need?

    Through the cabin access cover there appears to be quite a bit of room to route wires, even more when I pull the fuel tank access on the rear deck.

    Thanks,
    John

    how about using a factory made deck access hatch.

      Thanks for the suggestion Joe, someone brought those to my attention a few days ago.

      Perhaps I should install a couple small vents since those hatches can be fairly air-tight.

        OK, so much for that plan, upon further inspection I see it's hollow under the seats.

        Bait wells is another option, but I would like to keep them.

        Any other ideas? Has anyone recessed them under the cabin seats or floor?
        Thanks,
        John
