I bought a new/used boat 2008 with merc verado 175.

The boat has original batteries.

I was told that the verados require an 'AGM' battery.

What is that and why?   

I cannot find at any of the big box type stores like Farm and Fleet or Walmart.

I stopped at local boat dealer last night to get a battery.   I said there is a sticker in boat and manual says I need an AGM.

They said i did not need an AGM battery and very rarely do they put them in.  SO i bought what they recommended.

The MCA and minutes are over what the boat sticker requires, so maybe AGM is not needed?

We will see what happens.

For the cranking amps needed for the efi.

A lot of guys are recommending the duracell agm group 31 from sams club. Also make sure your charger can handle charging an agm battery. Some will not and you will kill your expensive battery.
