I have been using the same battery in my '96 Prostar 205 LTI for 10 years now. It has served me well, having always had it connected to a solar maintainer whenever the boat was not being used. For the past couple of years, maybe a few times over the summer, I'd have to take the battery out for a full recharge. I think it's time for a new battery.

Costco has those Optima Marine batteries, which I am considering. What do you guys recommend?

Whatever you have that lasted 10 years I'd get another. I've had good luck and bad luck with Optimas. Currently have a red top that gets no maint sitting outside in a vehicle that is rarely driven, going strong 3yrs now. 2 yrs on a Blue top as one of my boat batteries. It's doing good still but it's maintained. Have had multipel red tops prior to that that were crap.

I have had good luck with Delco. Get as many cca as you can fit in the box.
