The interstates are good though, costco has good batteries as well that will replace those, but if you plan to be out on the hook for any length of time, then you should have a dedicated house bank of the appropriate battery type.
Take some time to see how your boat is wired first before you make a decision what to do...you should draw out what batteries are on #1 and which are on #2 on your switch........that is my advice anyway.

If you're considering getting 5 good quality batteries, they will not be cheap so you want them to last. To help extend their longevity, if you still have the original battery charger, consider replacing it with a new smart one. There are many benefits to to doing that including a safety one.
