For the last couple decades I too have used 8 volt batteries in a 1946 Chris Craft 17 foot runabout that we've had for about 40 years. Works great. I changed to a solid state cut-out switch a few years ago. That was another worthwhile upgrade. No more sticking contacts to drain the battery when the engine was not running.
