Source for Trojan T-105 in Palm Beach or alternative battery

We are in North Palm Beach Florida. I would like to buy 6 - Triojan T-105 batteries but I can not find a source any where near this area. Does anyone know of a source for the batteries?
As a backup plan what other type of batteries would be comparable to the Trojan T-105s?

If you go to the Trojan web site and look for suppliers in Florida you will get the answer...

There isn't much that else compares to the genuine Trojan's.

They are made better and actually have a lot more power than some of the cheap knock offs. Prices have been rising quite a bit too. The word I got was that Trojan failed to lock in the lead price with the smelters and so is buying on the open market lead prices.

If you were not going with Trojans I would suggest AGM's IF you can readjust your charging system to handle AGM's. If you can't then you'll trash them sure as anything. They need a different charging profile. I did that with my previous boat and it was great. My current boat requires I change out the regulator and I wasn't ready for that expense so bought Trojans at about 50% more than they used to be.
