    If you're sticking with SLA, I wouldn't use anything other than deep cycle. It can provide high enough cranking amps when you need it, and you're not going to be boating in -20 degrees when the CCA might not be enough.

    Are we talking about a 'start the engine, power some accessories' battery, or a trolling motor battery? Completely different profiles involved.
    If it is a 'start the engine' battery, is it one or more outboards, or an inboard?
    Remember, Two is One, and One is None!.
