That will be fine. I think the manual calls for a minimum of 650.

I have had very good luck with Deka Marine Batteries in my bass boat and my checkmate.

I run Optimas in everything I own,,,, they had a bad run for a couple years but they are back on track now.

Its the only thing that will run my stereo for more then 1/2 hr.

If its just a starting battery with no big amplifiers,,,, Interstate will work just fine.

I've had pretty good luck with Optima. I did buy an Odyssey house battery for my boat about three years ago- still going strong. I like the fact that the Odyssey can be used as a starter battery and house battery without harming the batteries life cycle.
