Start Battery

After reading a couple of books (Nigel Calder especially), I wonder if the argument could be made to make your starting battery a true "starting" battery. Given the short use and high amps, wouldn't the thin-plated batteries be a better battery than more traditional deep cycle?

I am not saying you cannot use one for another, but the thin plates on a true start battery and quick surface charge (not to mention a lot lower cost), might make a true start battery a better option.
