    Was wondering if it is possible to fit a 36 volt battery system into these boats?

    Yes, but usually not needed unless fighting huge current all day or cutting through weeds all day. It has been posted on here where guys discussed wanting a 36v, were talked out of it, and are plenty happy with the 24v system.

    Bobby, which model are you running/considering, I would suggest there might me a difference between...say xb2003 and xb21. Like JWolff said, unless you are are pushing your trolling system to the maximum, many of us are getting away with 24v systems, on the other hand, there are people who are used to big Rangers and Skeeters, and demand ample juice. I would say that Allison owners are always performance oriented and thus resist the option of adding a third battery.

    I am running a 36v troller on my xb21. I have 2 Lithium Pro 36v batteries.

    I run a 36 volt system on my 2003, I only use 3 batteries total. I have never had a problem
