    Go to KMart and buy a battery mount that secures to your deck. You will also need a plastic battery box to protect and cover your battery. I am not sure why they seem to only sell them in black, because heat can permanently damage or destroy your battery. I am planning to paint my battery box white, but there you have it. That should be enough to protect and store your battery while on the water. Cheers.
