Sooo - in regard to my post #5... I was at the mechanic shop Saturday morn. Learned that although they are not taking on new clients with boats older than the year 2000; that because I've been a client for a decade they grand fathered me and our 1977 Tollycraft in for continued service! YEA!

Installed four new 31M deep cycle la marine batts in parallel during Sat afternoon. The old four were exact same. I'd put them in beginning of June 2010. At 8.3 years and being that their orig product cost was $440... equates to: $53 per year - or - $4.42 per month - or - $1.00 per week.

Not Tooooo Shabby Gabby!

The new batts will probably average similar for long term batt product cost. I deal nearly exclusively with "Batteries Plus" chain of stores.
