What battery should I buy?
I need to replace the batteries in my boat this spring and would like your opinion on what style of battery is best. I currently have one starter battery and two house batteries. All are traditional, unsealed design. Stay with unsealed? AGM? Gel?
Should I use an automotive style battery for the starter and deep cycles for the house bank?
The boat is plugged into shore power with a battery charger when not in use, if that matters.
This is my first boat, and I am realizing it is a little more complicated than stopping at Autozone to pick up a new battery on my way home from work.
