    You need to be careful with AGMs. If the charger voltage is too high you can permanently damage the battery

    Probably a shorted cell or the battery is low on electrolyte or completely shot. Unless your charger is broken, it only supplies 15A early in the charge cycle when needed.

    While you are long lining there isn't going to be much you can do. Light boat sits high and catches the wind. A drift sock will drag behind you.

    Follow Cray's advice, but likely you have a speed coil issue and will need to go inside the motor housing.

    I would imagine I do know a lot more about it than them. Some of my batteries were on boats that cost $3 billion each.

    Exactly the opposite. Deep-cycle batteries have thicker plates while cranking batteries have more plates but thinner ones. Plate surface area is what controls maximum output and charging current, so...

    The heaviest battery will have the largest capacity unless you move to another technology. Lithium batteries are substantially lighter than lead acid batteries.

    That is the whole point. RC is defined by an SAE standard (J537) just like CCA and is always done at 25A. East Penn uses the 23A to give their batteries inflated numbers. The East Penn flooded cell...

    OP is looking for a trolling motor battery, so dual purpose isn't part of the equation.

    The $100 battery is no bargain. It is 185 minute RC at $100. You can easily find 205/210 minute RC for less than $100 in a Group 29 with a much better warranty.
