    Optima blue top (D31M) for my money ..... good cranking & good deep cycle capacity

    Spiral wound make them very robust

    That'll do the job, just remember to put the charger on it as soon as you get back from a trip, mine has lasted nearly 7 years with lots of abuse and now lives in the tinnie only because I had a spare and did some battery changes between both boats.

    Without a doubt the pick of the crop I have one in my Seajay that has hit 7 years as well . & for 5 of those years it was the sole battery ( no house battery) - so it was pushed running up to 3 sounders on the boat .
    I'll no doubt be replacing the batteries on the barcrusher with one if not two when funds become available
    Good advice on the maintenance though - disconnect & charge every few weeks (if not being used)

    I bought my Bluetop optima from Battery Central, great service (They delivered it to the boat) and they were the cheapest by far just paid be credit card from the truck, I have no affiliation but they looked after me well so appy to recommend them.
