I would suggest a Sealed Lead Acid preferably and AGM. A commmon
size is a U1. The sime physical size as you use in a garden tractor
battery. They are rated 12v and 35 to 50 ahr. No telling how many
flashes you would get but I would think close to 600.

These are easy to find since they are used in wheelchairs and

Excellant information. I was going to go buy a deep dis-charge trolling motor battery today, but didn't get around to it. Thanks for saving me the time/money. Now I know what to look for.

Now all I need to know is if the "smart charger" I bought 3 years ago for the trolling motor that died from lack of attention will work correctly on the U1 battery you reccommended... The quest and questions continue.
