I finally got a little 9.5ft basshound with a 30lb trollin motor on it with some sort of battery that doesnt work anymore so tomorrow i am going to have to go buy a new battery. i know i will want a deep cycle but i am new to this and would like some advice as to how big/what type of battery would be best. i would expect to be on the lake for as long as 10 or 12 hours at a time but would only run it to get from one spot to another. i doubt ill be doing a lot of extended trolling with it.
also, will my old school battery charger for car batteries work or should i invest in one of those newer ones designed specifically for deep cycle batteries? thanks!
