Go for the high cca's when you series 875 marine cranking amps together, Thats what you have 875 amps, not cold cranking,Nice battery.. 875 amps

I like dekas
If you want more amps than you have to parllell a bunch of cells then series them

like this use 2 per series and your amps will be at 1750 amps

I just bought 4 dekas from napa auto parts.

they are the 1110 ca / 925 cca versions.

and they absolutely blow away my old batterys wich were 650 cca deka marine masters that absolutely sucked ass - wouldnt hold a charge and wore out so fast. was chargen em every single night.

the new dekas from napa get charged twice a week and im good to go.

They are OK batts.They didn't leak, so I liked them I used them in a few cars when I got them for distributor prices. Now, yopu can probably find a better batt for the price.

875 marine amps is like 650 CCAs

here's the difference explained.

"Starting batteries are usually rated at "CCA", or cold cranking amps, or "MCA", Marine cranking amps - the same as "CA". Any battery with the capacity shown in CA or MCA may or may not be a true deep-cycle battery. It is sometimes hard to tell, as the term deep cycle is often overused. CA and MCA ratings are at 32 degrees F, while CCA is at zero degree F. Unfortunately, the only positive way to tell with some batteries is to buy one and cut it open - not much of an option."
