Guys, I was just pulling my battery out to give it a fresh charge before I de-winterize next weekend. The battery came with the boat when I bought it last year. I would like to not have to buy a new battery this year if possible. The previous owner didn't notate on the battery when it was put into use through the stickers that are on the battery. Any ideas on how I can convince myself that the battery is good to go for the season? I never had an issue with it last season. Is there somewhere I can go to get the thing tested for free?

Most Advance and AutoZone Auto Parts among others, advertise free battery testing or you can purchase a tester to do it yourself, but there is no guarantee the battery will not go bad or when, no matter how much testing you do. It's either good or bad.
