I know that this subject has been beating down but going to ask again for a refresh update due to changes made at stores. Any recommendations on a Cranking battery? I currently have a Sears group 31 it's the battery that a lot of people went to for a cranking battery and in order to run there Live wells/aerators depth finders power poles mainly everything but trolling Motors but in the last year or so they don't make that battery any more so I'm in need of a replacement for my Yamaha 200 plus all the stuff I mention any recommendation, don't see where Walmart has a 31 battery and I don't think a 29 will handle it all. Anyone have luck with Interstate batteries I have not in the past but maybe they have gotten batter. If I can make room in my TR20 battery compartment I'm thinking about getting a smaller cranking battery just fro cranking and live wells and a smaller deep cycle for my depth finders/Power Pole.

I went to a 31 Interstate and have had no problems at all, 2 HDS 8's all day sometimes several days a week. Also Academy has 31's. I will not go back to a 29. Until a few years ago Walmart had 31s' which worked well.

Lenahorse, are you using a dual purpose for cranking and if so what's the cold cranking amps?

First and foremost make sure you are using the correct battery per your outboard mgf specifications....
