Need some help guys on selecting the best batteries for my boat. I have a 24 volt system and a Terrova 80# trolling motor. My current batteries are on their 4th season. I use the spot lock a lot and if there's any kind of wind my batteries are juiced after a couple hours of fishing. I know most of you guys out there have way more experience than i do with this matter so I appreciate any and all help!

I have the same set-up and use Optima Blue top batteries, www.streetsideauto.com had the best price when I bought mine.

Use nothing but cabellas AGM batteries. Always at least 5 years no problem no maintence.
Just catch them on sale and they are not that expensive.

I suspect you have 27s as the batteries for your trolling motor. I would look into 29s or 31s to replace the 27s.

I didn't see in your post if yours are deep cycle or not..definately get deep cycle group 29 or 31.

Cabelas AGM are great. I've had good luck with Excide also. Have only used Optima for starting battery with no problems.

Just replaced my (3) 6 year old Optima Blue Tops. Got them from www.streetsideauto.com also. Best prices I found.
