I need a couple new batteries. 1 big motor and a deep cycle.
Recommendations?

I don't know enough about the high end batteries to comment on them-
I have an Interstate for cranking and a Walmart deep cycle-
No issues with either one-

I have heard that the gel type are a lot better, if you don't mind me asking what are the advantages of it? with my batteries I always put a trickle charge on it as soon as I get home from a trip and that helps with its longevity

Batteries seem to have come a long ways in a short amount of time. At least that is the way it seems to me.
AGM batteries closed cell seem to be the way to go!

Never had a problem with Walmart batteries. Got some Interstates that have held up very well too.

There's a big topic at the top of the Boats And Motor section that's should answer any questions you have.
