No, just the generic black kind. It would totally enclose the battery. The guy I bought my boat from decided to drill holes through the

bottom of the box to mount it. Kind'a defeats the purpose of the box.

Thanks,

Bondo

Pretty sure walmart carries them.

If not, west marine, or order from overtons.com

West Marine carries lots of general stuff like that also, if you have one close by. That's where I usually shop for basic boat stuff, and they have great customer service plus as mentioned above online ordering.

D-GOOSE, Where do you find the Optima battery holder you have in that pic? It looks pretty sweet!

I do believe summit racing and jegs carries them also.

Nice! I don't see the point of getting Optima batteries and then putting them in a black box. I think the batteries look good enough to be mounted like that.

As much as the Optimas cost I'm thinking about mounting both of mine on top of the dash. I want to see them all the time.

Seriously! I just ordered 2 of those battery holders that DGOOSE posted. I'm just hoping they hold the batteries tight enough to prevent them from bouncing around. Most of the battery holders have some type of strap or top mount that holds them in place.
