I receieved the filter cable from HB cust service, but its only 6ft long.

The graph is located on the front deck, batteries are in the back of an 18 foot boat.

want to make sure this is done right, so what kind of wire and what gauge.

Thanks

12-14 Gauge is what I recommend. 14-16 will do it but little larger gauge doesn't hurt as it provides additional capacity as resistance builds in the wire over time.
