On the other side of the coin. You can charge a regular battery in minutes not 24 hrs. I run a 4D battery out of one of our dozers. Lasts longer than a deep cycle and I can charge it full in 20 minutes.
That would prob turn my row boat into a habitat for bass if it's as heavy as i think it is...And probly electricute me to boot on the way down with my ship..

about 75 lbs

My new Minkota manual says I void the warranty if I use a car battery.

You should charge your battery as soon as you can after each use. Use the lowest setting on your charger. It will take a little longer but the battery will last much longer in the long run. There's lots of good info on the net. Here is a link to get you started: http://www.independent-power.com/battery_maintenance.htm
