Run 6 gauge wire for the trolling motor and 16 gauge wire for the depth finder. This will cover anything you put in now and you will be covered if you want to upgrade later on down the road. Be sure to use a circuit breaker for the TM and a fuse for the DF.

I have no idea.It's not that hard to do though.Are you going to add a foot or hand tm? Fish finder's come with detailed instruction's.Pick your head up and do it yourself.The Empire State Building was built with simple instruction's.

$500 plus for the trolling motor (12v cheap model) installed...probably include the battery...24V might be a bit higher...End cost depends on brand and 12v vs 24v.
