New capstan

Bought a "capstan A" from C&J capstans, half a ton of pulling power so no more anchor problems :-) NOW, what to do to power it? 

Option 1 :- Heavy cables run all the way from the engine room battery bank.
Option 2 :- Place a 140ah battery in the bow with a charging cable run from the engine?

Hm, to avoid unnecessary voltage drop option 2 seems to be the best answer.....
