Re: Battery recommendation for Crealock 34

I use 3 Lifeline GPL-31XT AGM batteries, for a total of 375 amp hour capacity (125ah x 3).

This photo shows how all 3 batteries fit in the original PS34 box:



To get the outboard, forward battery (right, top, as you look at the photo) to fit right, I built a custom plywood platform for that battery that raises that battery slightly. The battery still clears the 3/4" plywood cover that I built that goes over the top and is secured with heavy bolts at the outboard end and slides under a wood strip at the inboard end (I can take a photo of the cover if you want to see that too).
