How many pounds of batteries are in your boat, I just put 4 Optima 31 series in my boat, 240 pounds, ouch for the speed. Boat came with Interstate AGM 31's lasted two years, bunk ! Only 18 month warranty

Sounds about right. I weighed one of them a while back. Seems like they were 63# apiece for the group 31's.

How much less were the Interstates? Batteries are just a "necessary evil" on a bass boat. Since you have to have them you are overthinking a few pounds IMHO. You will like the Optima's. "Biting the bullet" on lithium's is a huge large caliber bullet! :-).

Make sure your fire loss coverage stays in force.

These are the ones I been looking at and talking to a guy on BBC about them that says he can get a discount if I buy all 4 at the same time.

Biting the bullet on optima 31s was hard.I'd have to get a loan to buy lithiums.

Yes. My rep from relion will give you a deal on 4 batteries and give you free charger included with it.

Given the price paid for a multi-battery package, that charger isn't quite "free". roflmao

I know one thing, I am sure glad I changed them out yesterday, today on Ray Roberts was quite breezy, they held up great and i was on them all day.
