Batteries

Hi,

Need some new batteries for the Extreme, can anyone advise what I should get? Electrics wise, I only have the stereo and lights, so I'm thinking that 2 normal starting batteries will suffice? Also, I want them quick!

Cheers

I wouldn't. Just get the cheapest, 80ish ah capacity "normal" battery you can find from yer local motor factors. 30 quid is very good - but tony has a special source. Just visit up a few motor factors locally and see what fits. Think I got mine for 39.99.
All batteries in powerboats boats get shagged quite quickly - they sit for months often discharged and get a right hard life being thrown about.
