New Battery for my Boat  (Read 3360 times)
I bought a box of animal crackers and it said on it "Do not eat if seal is broken." So I opened up the box, and sure enough...

Alright I am going to get a new battery for my boat (77Ranger with 115 evinrude) and would like some imput from people who have gotten batterys lately.

1. Has any one had a bad experience with any brands of batterys?

2. I planned on just going to Wal-Mart and getting one. Does anyone know a cheaper place?

I dont want a battery that I have to take a loan out to get but want one that will withstand the Texas Climate. (If there is such a Battery icon_lol )

I know a fella that works for interstate batteries.  They claim to make 90% of them.  Then others just slap a sticker on them.

I would not doubt it...It seems like there are really only a few companys that make stuff anymore. They just own little companys with different names to make you think you have a variety..

Oh well... icon_lol

Steve, I should have my boat and truck all put back together here in a couple of weeks. I'll let you know when and we can meet up and hit the lake.

Academy and Sam's would be where I would try.  Be sure that you're getting the most CCA and/or reserve power you can... You should spend under $80 (that's shooting high).  Of course, I have a Sam's and an Academy within a mile of each other, so I'm spoiled.

Okay, the extra that you were expecting to spend can be sent to me.  Or, better yet, send me a t-shirt, two bumper stickers and two round stickers that say I'm a supporting member Smiley...
