FWIW  its usually not a good idea to run both batteries in parallel (together) if that is what you mean.  If one battey develops a bad cell it will kill the other battery as well ....quite quickly.  best to run on one then tho other next trip (or out then change for in depending on how oftey you take the boat out)

And yep the place on Puesy? street is the cheapest around ...just bought one from them.
