Most batteries on sale now at West Marine! Picking up another Group 31 AGM for a second house battery for a pretty good discount.

Use Walmart batteries for my lift and I got about 4 years out of them. Couldn't beat that for the price of $81.00. In the boat currently Interstate, (starting) and Die Hard AGM, (house). Used West Marine -OK but you need to get them on sale. AGM was expensive and HEAVY.

I get my batteries at a-1 battery and electric in Quincy. He sells deka batteries. Last year I got a 4d agm for the starting battey. Whirls the engine over like a charm and there is plenty of reserve. I have that connected thru a blue seas ACR to two group 27s that I will replace next year with a 4d house battery. The guy at a-1 is a stand up guy running a small business, I’d rather see him get my money instead of some big box store. He also rebuilds starters and alternators, and can sometimes deliver to you.

If you still have a Sears near you the Diehards are a good deal.You need to buy them on line and pick up at a store.If there still open that is.
