Jan, thanks, but did you actually follow that link? :D

They want all your info and then they'll have someone contact you!! Sounds like a scam setup to me, and next thing you know I'll have 10,000 SPAM emails in my box and people calling my cell phone at 1 AM to sell me used mattresses or something!

;D ;D

Having dealt with them in the past for our Project NMZ (they donated the battery) I can tell you that they they will not spam you. They will get you in-touch with someone as local as possible to you...

TOm, did you see my post????
Yeah, some reason it came though after Jan's...the 6 days shipping is what's steering me from that, but thank you for the link.

Don't we have a battery dealer/rep as a forum member???

Tom, I have been getting yellow top deep cyl AGM optma's for $100.00 let me know if you want one.
Problem is, I have two Odyssey PC1200's I pulled from the redfisher, and want to use them for the trolling motor on the LT20, and add a third battery for start/misc stuff like the livewell, GPS, etc.

Not sure if I can mix/match batteries, and also if the yellow-tops have the capacity of the PC1700

Trouble is, the PC1700 is big bucks... :(

Well now I'm completely stumped.

I called Yamaha and they reccomended NOT using an Odyssey battery as a start battery for either of the Yamaha outboards I have. They reccomend a lead-acid battery, specifically for my use the Deka dual-purpose would work well.

Unfortunately, the DEKA is a lead-acid, and I don't think I can mix that with the two Odyssey batteries for the trolling motor.

So now what? I've got two brand new PC1200's that it looks like without a miracle I won't be able to use???

Anyone have an idea that will work? Should I return my 3-bank charger and get a 2-bank for the odysseys and a seperate, 1-bank charger for the starter battery???

Tom,

I see shallow water customs http://www.shallowwatercustoms.com/index.html a M/S advertiser lists odyssey batterys and deka. They are in Ft. Lauderdale I think just over an hour away. Might be local enough??
