I would suggest thinking very hard if you need AGMs. They are more expensive and require much better management and maintenance (i.e. quite specific charging regime). In normal use, they won't last longer, either.
If you are forced to have a battery in the enclosed compartment (in your cabin), you may consider a gel battery - non-spillable and virtually, no off-gassing. From what I understand, they are less sensitive to variations in charging voltage (you can use a standard charger). Many people had decent results with standard wet lead-acid deep cycle batteries from Costco. Since you are in Toronto, personally, I would stay far, far away from Canadian Tire. Others would probably chime in on various brands that do (or don't) work on their boats.

I also have a dedicated battery for my Windless (don't ask). Any suggestions.
