We are often asked for advice concerning battery choice on boats. Surprisingly the answer is simpler than expected:
Use AGM batteries purchased from a vendor that will be available if warranty replacement is needed.
Vendor options: Consider where the boat may be next year if you have a warranty situation with a battery. West Marine is a good friend while traveling by boat. (don’t forget that they price match)
Notes: when changing batteries note that the battery charger must match the batteries and that it is bad practice to mix and match battery types (example AGM & Wet Cell)
