I'm looking to add a starting battery to a new to me boat with a 225 Optimax. Wanting a series 31 with 1000 CCA. With all the power electronics consume now days, any suggestions. FYI...Not interested in going lithium

I have this battery, mine has NAPA on the side but its this battery. DEKA makes a Series 31 battery, but it doesn't have as high a cold cranking amp rating as this one. Lowes doesn't stock these, but you can order them.

I have an 2008 225 Optimax and this is what I've been running for the past 2 years for cranking plus two more for trolling. I haven't had a single issue so far.

I have 3 of these in my boat...1 cranking 2 trolling

They haven't let me down all season. I punish my batteries on tournament days and these take it like none other.

Haha. I have a few of them at work from customers cars. They switch out to lithium for their street rods and I get to keep the “junk”. When I get one more, I’ll swap them into my boat. Ain’t nothing like free!

Correct me if I’m wrong but it’s my understanding the CCA are exactly that and the juice for running electronics, etc come from the reserve capacity of the battery. The larger group batteries have a larger reserve capacity on them. I have an Interstate AGM 31 and never have issues with running 3 graphs all day, livewells, pumps, etc. It has 925CCA and 200RC. That Duracell from Sams club is good. That Deka stating ‘high reserve capacity’ without assigning a number to it is concerning
