Default Battery help with pics

I think it may be time to replace this, as the date of manufacture is about 5 years old. Here are some pics of the battery. Is this a good one? Is there something better? I dont know a darned thing about it, so feel free to tell me all about it.
Thanks!

Default Battery Specs

Found the specs, but can somebody please decipher all the "code"? How many hours should this last? We run a small fridge on our 2500 scr while anchored, use the interior lights for a few hours at night, and maybe play the cd player every so often. Oh, and the occasional flushing of the head.
Thanks all.

man..that's a ton of hp for your boat....lots of house batt....that's a golf cart set up usually used on larger boats...however it's good to have when your out on a hook....so..for you I'd say it's over kill...but for anchoring out...it's awesome....
there are batt. shops all around the sound...the one I know of is up in Everett on broadway......I think it's All Battery Sales And Service

they take your battery on trade and will set up the new ones....something to think about...or you could go to costco and get a group 27 (very large batt. for your size boat) instead...much cheaper in the long run....

Thanks! I like the power for when we are on the hook for multiple days. I found a dyno that is comparable, but what I like about the Rolls is that there are 6 individual cells that I think I can take out one by one. I dont know how in the hell I would get it out of the engine compartment any other way. Let alone put a 116 pund battery in without breaking all kinds of stuff as well as dislocating a shoulder.

What rgreenwell8962 described (along with pics ) is along the lines of the setup I was contemplating for my boat next year.

I'm still trying to figure out what will give me the biggest bang for my buck in regards to Amp Hours. Golf Cart setup vs. a big 4D or 8D.
