Why is it so difficult to find replacement batteries?

Posted By on November 15, 2013

I found out my small 28HP diesel “sailboat duty” jump starter had a bad battery last week (my starter and deep cycle battery bank is another story). Yes it was frustrating, but since Encore was still hanging in the travellift slings it wasn’t panic time either. Nevertheless it is time to find a new battery.

I did some online surfing and the one I wanted is tough to find … but zbattery.com had one with a $25.99 price (high?) and $11+ for shipping. It seems finding a seal lead-acid battery with the heavy nut and bolt terminals is more of a challenge than I thought?
