I just was looking at the Rolls battery they have a modular that each section only weighs around 30lbs and it takes six to make a d-8 and I think you can replace a bad cell if need be.
With the Coast Guard requiring all batteries to be contained within their own compartment or container, the 8-D is the standard size designated by the Battery Council International (20 3/4" x 11" x 10") with a general capacity of 200AH. Now, with the new 12-HHG-325, you get 325AH from the same space. The modular design incorporates removable cells weighing only 30 lbs. each, which can be installed one at a time, making installation a breeze. Featuring its own Blue Seas Coast Guard approved battery box with removable cover, this new battery replacement system fits in the same space as an ordinary 8-D contained in a battery box. An added feature of the 12-HHG-325 is its "Hydrocaps" -specifically designed recombination caps that eliminate hydrogen off-gassing and drastically reduce maintenance to once a year topping off.
If you are considering replacing your 8-d battery, take a close look at this new system offering 65% increase in capacity, improved cycle-life, low maintenance and easy installation.
