Trojans are not the only choice for wet acid batts.
Interstate makes 225Ah. 6V that are pretty good also. They hold more liquid are heavier and have better construction.
I've had six of them in my Endeavour 32 for 8 years now maintained only by my AirX turbine...they lasted 8 years and I wasn't very nice to them. I bought 2 Rolls Surrette 8D's because I got them for a song at CE Beckman's.
But I was pleased with the Interstates.
And...There is no such thing as a "maintenance free" batt.
