battery system upgrade

as i sit here and contemplate my house/starting battery system, I was lookinh for some comments on what works best. I currently have a 2 bank system. Starting Battery (bank 1) and Group27 105 AH house battery. My house battery is nearing the end of its life and was thinking about replacing it with 2 6 volt. golf cart batteries. (huge increase in AH's) I charge the batteries with a 70 amp alternator from the engine as well as an 15 watt solar panel for the house and a 5 watt tricle charger for the staring batt.

Does this sound appropriate??
