I carry both. The weight of 1 extra battery on the boat is negligible unless it is a small skiff. The way I see it, if the starter battery dies, I try the jump. If that fails I have a battery.

Misterfu, I drive 8-10 under when towing the bigger boat. There is a big wind resistance difference between 70 and 60. Also better fuel economy, longer bearing and trailer tire life, and safer. Going...

Got a dude on here saying a whole line is bad because of an experience on one of their many boats. Gotta love this perfect example of illogical "opinions" based on little fact and experience. We are...

Having been on those last ones listed, they really are not better "quality" than a Sea Hunt. They have more powder coat to chip and automatic doors to break after a year, but definitely not much...

Are you talking about the Gary's Tackle Box post? It was for a 250. If there was another with a 225 then that would be 2 problems for the same thing.
