    Battery in the boat is dead. Was looking at the AGM batteries on Cabelas. Has anyone used them?

    I have two. Very good batteries. Caught them on sale, but can't remember how much they were---free shipping too, thank goodness. Those dudes are heavy!

    How long ago did you get them? How well do they do starting in below freezing temperatures?

    I have had an AGM "six pack" battery, NAPA branded for a good six years, I believe they are called "Orbital" or something like that. Have yet to have a problem. Battery runs start, T&T, and the spot light back when I was still mad at 'em. Was significantly cheaper than the Optima at that time.

    Got 'em last year, but I seldom use them in the winter. I use mine on a 24v 70# thrust trolling motor, and to start the 25HP Mercury. Can troll all day long even in high winds.
