My recently purchased W-32 has 4 - 6 volt gel batteries. They are about 7 years old and will no longer hold a charge. Batteries can range greatly on price. My local marine store (Hamilton) sells golf cart batteries for $85. each with about 240 AH. They were made in Mexico.

Is it worth spending almost twice as much for Rolls / Surrette? Any other suggestions?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
