Holley Electric Choke Wiring

Hello all. I am trying to hook up my electric choke on my Marine 600cfm Holley. Problem is trying to find an ignition source in the engine bay. Everything on my boat is run through separate circuit breakers and there is very little to choose from as far as an ignition source. I know running off the coil is bad for life. But, what if I were to run a standard 12V 4 post relay and only use the coil as the ignition source? Shouldnt provide any draw since it is only being used as an excitation voltage right? Thanks guys!

There's a much easier way to wire the choke. Use a Standard Products PS64 oil pressure switch and wire directly from the alternator or other +12V source. Since the switch only makes contact when the engine is running and there's oil pressure, using a 12v source that's always on isn't a problem.
