On our old club SIB (a 16' Humber with a mariner 40 on it), I got hold of a small sealed lead acid battery from a small electric buggy and sat it in a plastic food container. it just needed a small hole and grommet for the cable and made the battery secure but easily accessible. I bolted the box to a piece of wood we had mounted to a center bottle rack, which also held the gps unit. It lasted weeks between charges. That was a little lowrance unit too. Seemed pretty good once we figured out how to use it.
