Yeah ?!?!? I've got coastal batteries ! I don't trust them , don't like them . That's what came with the boat . If I had the prescence of mind I would have gotten a different kind , would have cost more money though I'm sure . Coastal batteries look like they would be a recycled battery , like Excide batteries .

Did you ever service them ? How long have you had them ? How many amps is your charger ?

Make sure you get in there and clean all that acid up soon , spray it all down with a good anti-corrosion stuff .

I guess I should have checked the acid level more often the one battery that didnt blow up checked out good acid level full hydrometer read good also , charged good just hard to get in your console and see the acid levels without disconnecting wiring and removing the batterys washed the console out with water and baking soda my question to vendors that sale any batterys they would stress to each customer that low acid levels will cause batterys to blow up first time ever for me.

When I bought mine , I got a feeling we got our boats from the same place , Philip told me to make sure there was plenty of of acid in there . He didn't mention nothing of them blowing up .
