    What does the top look like?

    Edit: Looks like a rather large battery at 29 pounds.

    35 Amp Hour

    Length 7.62
    Width 5.12
    Height 6.56
    Terminals TI

    Weight (29)

    Manufacturer Power Patrol
    Model # Power Patrol By Interstate 12V 35AH TI Battery SLA1156
    I suppose if you can find a way to securely mount it, it will indeed start and run the engine just fine.

    A nearly 30 pound battery is not something you want to come loose in rough water.

    I thought it was pretty heavy. But the price is right!
    Any suggestions on the best way to make SURE it doesn't come loose?

    Power patrol batteries are designed for Fire Alarm / Security Alarm backup systems. I've used them for Camcorder lighting in the past, and they would get pretty warm with a 12v 30 watt lamp. Different ah rating or course, but not really a vehicle battery, but that's just my opinion....

    How do you plan to mount the electric box with that huge battery?

  7. #7
    It's 6 months old. I'm not sure how to mount the electric box. If you guys think it's a bad idea to use this battery then no loss to me.
    I was just thinking if it's possible to use it then I would. But, I don't want to end up with problems because I used the wrong battery.
    My friend said it is used in small scooters. I have spent a lot of money so far getting all the right parts for my ski. I don't want to just
    put something in it because it's free. Only to find out later that it was a bad idea. All input so far and going forward is appreciated.

    If you can sell that large battery then put the money towards a proper sized Deka made AGM battery.

    Thanks for the help. I will be getting a Deka AGM. No sense in messing around with the wrong size battery.
