Battery for me Tinny



I'm going to bang a new battery in my dingi and before I get to the battery shop and get some bloke talking shop talk I thought I'd ask peoples opinions as i'm out of the loop now.


Its only a 25yam 4st so doesn't need much to crank it.


I was wondering if its worth spending the cash for a Lithium etc.... I'll let you fellas throw a few ideas at me....

 I'm no expert, but figured lithium's were more of a deep cycle style? Unless your doing lots of overnighters using heaps of lights, etc.. I'd just buy a good quality bosch.. Or AC delco if they still make them. buy once. Goodchilds are a good family run business and use bosch

 Mate the medium century marine battery is all you need for a 25 hp. From memory 70 a/h and 580 cca . Not to expensive and reliable. PS and made in Australia.
