    Could you use one of the deep cycle batteries for the trolling motor on the boat motor?

    Would it do any damage to anything?

    Well I'll tell you the story behind the question.

    I went to go out yesterday, and the motor wouldn't crank. So I thought about doing it, and couldn't think of a reason not to, but didn't. I wanted to make sure it was ok, so I came here where you can always find someone who knows anything you need to.

    Thanks Brothers,
    Steve

    the thing behind deep cycle batteries is that they are made to be charged then drained repeatedly without damage to the core.
