Re: Battery Recommendation

IF you have a battery box, you might try to fit a group 29 in it. My boat had two group 27s and there was about ˝" of space inside the two battery boxes. The group 29s fit the box like a hand in a glove...

Regarding brands; the Duracell brand - available at SAMs club - are good batteries at a good price. Our buddy Maine Sail (post #4, above) did a good write up on these some time ago. Google search "SAMs Club /site:www.sailnet.com" and you should find the thread.
