Happy boating!

RIBase
eBay item number:271414476334
75hp 2 stroke engine)

I was thinking some thing like this
What do you think

Suitable for
Caravans, Boats, RV, Leisure use and more.
This is a Heavy Duty Domestic battery and it's purpose is to run applications with it's deep cycling capabilities
Warranty
4 YEARS
Description
This range of Leisure / Marine batteries are of a lead calcium construction which means the plates have been hardened, therefore giving the battery a longer life and better starting capabilities than your conventional leisure batteries. These batteries come with a 4 Year Warranty and are perfect for domestic use.

This battery comes fully charged and ready for use

It is a DEEP CYCLE battery, which means unlike a car battery, they can handle being discharged to a higher capacity and recharged again without affecting the future performance of the battery. Another thing to note about these batteries which is vital is that when charging and discharging they have 250 life cycles.

I'd get a gel cell if possible and you can find one big enough. AGM as an alternative. They don't have unsupported plates or liquid electrolyte that are more shock sensitive and may release gas when charging (though the one you have found looks to be a sealed unit so this may not be a problem)
