The battery I bought from them is a true deep cycle (and it replaced a Trojan). The Walmart by my place has cranking, deep cycle/starting, and deep cycle.

Don't go to my house - the boat is painted black & white.* I never had a problem with that until zMan pointed it out as being a "skunk boat".

1 battery is enough for a 12 volt trolling motor - 2 for 24 volt, etc., etc.
Poor Ed...you are in the running for the CF Rodney Dangerfield Award with Zman. LOL!

BTW, I think I saw you towing your boat on my way back home from fishing with Jay. 225 horse bass boat and a dark colored towing vehicle? If so, NICE BOAT!

HL I've been in your boat and I'm pretty sure a couple of 9 volts would do just fine.

I agree with the interstate batteries. I think they are great. I have had one in my plow for years it sits uncharged for months at a time and always fires right up. I run them in my boat and RV and think they are the best I've tried.

Wal-mart batteries for the win though.

Just keep taking them back and say they won't hold a charge. The big box stores screw the little guy, its fun to get jabs back when you can...
