        Used this battery as a direct replacement for a dying battery in my 2005 GMC Canyon. I've only had it installed for a month now, but it's made plenty of difference so for, most notably in how fast it turns over my engine on 0* mornings. I don't think I'm ever going back to a normal battery after this!!!

            Original battery on boat lasted 11 years and was still going strong - it was replaced as a matter of service life expectancy. Replacement Marine DieHard lasted 1.5 yrs - no contest!

                        I had to buy a bunch of adapters at the local autoparts store to make the cables reach, but it does fit nicely in my car so I'm happy. I wish the posts were closer to the edge of the battery and not centered near the middle.

                            Hi K, I'm glad to assist you! This Part No. 34M-1050 is a starting battery only. For your application you would want to use one of our Deep Cycle Blue Top batteries. We do offer the Deep Cycle Battery Part No. D31M, D27M and D34M online. Depending on size and weight restrictions for your boat any of these should work. You will get the most run time from the Part No. D31M. Run time for a deep cycle application is amp hour rating of battery(s) divided by the total amp draw.
