Default Trolling motor batteries

So it appears one of my 3 year old DEKA deep cycle batteries is fried. Not holding a charge.

This is used on my wife's boat, a 1720 Key West with Motorguide 24v GPS trolling motor.

Wondering about a good value for replacement.

Probably selling the boat in the next 2 years, but I'm seeing Wal Mart (Everstart) and Advance Auto Autocraft marine batteries in the $60-$75 range.

Thoughts?

I've got Sam's Club Duracells in mine, I got them when they had a $20 off one day special. They get good reviews on here and I've been very happy with them, but I haven't had them long so can't speak to their longevity.

I have had good luck with the everstart batteries for my trolling motors. Usually got three to four years service. I use the AGM batteries now and so far I am pleased. Depends on what you want to pay.
