Have a Yamaha 200 4stroke and I think the battery is going south. Is the Academy battery a good battery? I have a few things on that battery also depth finder pumps ect... The price is good, so I being "cheap" was hoping for good results.

Check for the battery minimum requirements on the Yamaha...should be in the owners manual, and adjust for all your electronics and boating use (lights, livewells, etc.). Then purchase accordingly.

I like WalMart batteries for one simple reason, they are everywhere if I need to exchange on the road.

I had a battery go bad after driving to Fork. Was able to go to Walmart and swap it out. Funny thing is, it had a 1 or 2 year warranty and I had used about 8 months. They didn't just swap it out, they had to ring it up again as selling a new battery so my warranty for it started all over. Couldn't beat that deal.

I have the Ultima blue top D31M on my boat with a 150 merc and run full suite Lowrance electronics with sonic hub and everything else except trolling motor off of it. These things ain't cheap but they last.
Whatever you get a Perko master power switch is a good idea to isolate the battery completely when not in use.
