That last sentence under the section about "SELECTING THE CORRECT BATTERIES" is very interesting, kinda'/sorta'.  If you run your MK troller higher than 85% power ( on a real windy day lets say ) for

I'm still nervous about Lithium based batteries in boats.  The initial inception of them was not a positive experience for everyone.  Every boat that comes in here is a ticking time-bomb, I never

What is the reserve capacity of that battery?

230 mins. If these batteries actually meet specs they're pretty impressive. 75 lbs. is a clue they probably will. I've designed a lot of commercial battery chargers and tested pallets of batteries. The devil is always in the details.

yep. i went by the Ah rating and weight. also plenty of reviews from many different websites

 

There is a simple calculation to convert ah to rc, or the other way.  I found it online.  I think this is it.

I just try to keep it simple since I'm pretty simple. I just looked for Batteries with the Ah rating stated. No need to convert. Most batteries i saw with just an rc rating were dual purpose starting and deep cycle. I didn't need that.

New to me are the Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries I just discovered on eBay that are roughly half the price of Lithium Ion batteries.  They aren't quite as light-weight as Lithium Ion but are still only 40% the weight of traditional lead-acid batteries.   Saw them on the eBay site from a Chinese-maker in the $450-$499 range while they are on the Dakota battery site for the upper $800 range.   Found this information about Lithium Ion vs. Lithium Iron Phosphate if anyone is interested: https://www.lithium-battery-factory.com/lithium-iron-phosphate-vs-lithium-ion/
