I went with these:
They were a little pricier than some of the ones I found at Canadian Tire, but I found them to be much sturdier. I just clamped the hose from the sink onto the jugs with some stainless steel hose clamps. It worked fine.

I think that’s what Todd said, yes.
I should mention that this offer has passed (I bought the batteries last week), so the group purchase offer is closed.
Having said that, PoCo Marine should be one of your first places to get a quote. They give very good prices.
So, PoCo Marine is willing to offer a group price on Magnacharge 24DC 140 AGM Size 24 batteries at $210 plus tax. Is anyone else interested? I’m seeing them tomorrow (Monday, March 29) after work.
This thread from Macgregorsailors.com might be of use:
Yup, you were someone that I thought of when I revived this. I’ll make sure to keep you in the loop.
I don’t think it’s the same battery. The ones we purchased last year were AGM, not lead acid. I think the one in the link you provided is lead acid (but it’s tough to tell from the photo).
I’m reviving this thread. I’m interested in adding another AGM battery to my boat. I’m wondering if we might be able to get a virtual “boat show” deal at the Vancouver boat show if we have a group purchase. Is anyone out there interested?
Otherwise, we can probably get the original offer from PoCo Marine.

You might try going to the MacGregor Yacht Club of BC Facebook page and doing a search for the word “autopilot”. I think you’ll find some posts that might help.
Also, look at http://www.macgregorsailors.com.
I’m thinking about adding one to my ’99X in a year or two as well.
Here is a good thread discussing Sarca anchors:
As someone who almost exclusively will be single-handling, I’d love a session on single-handling tips and tricks, looking at launching, docking, retrieving, anchoring, and sailing.
I think it would also be useful in the event that a crew member is ill or otherwise incapacitated.
