Looking for batteries arround Alameda, Ca.

Aloha,
I think I bought a boat. Offer excepted. It's on the hard in Alameda, I'm going to see it in a few weeks. I want to change out the batteries while it's still on the hard. It has 4 seavolt 6 volt batteries in it now. They are about the same size as the trojan 105 I think. I want to stay with the led acid. Any one recomend who to buy from in the East Bay. Also any one know anything about the easy maintence caps for those hard to service Batteries?
Much Thanks. David B.

Just off Hiway 92 off of 880 is American Battery. I belive that is Hayward. Jim is the contact person. I have been dealing with him for years. Great quality, low prices. I get 10+ years from their batteries.

Just the thing.

Thanks Celetialsailor
I'll give them a try and I'll tell who sent me.
Did you already bring your boat over?
I'll be looking to bring this boat back in
early June if things work out.
Good sailing. David B.
