Unhappy overcharged 12V battery

I overcharged our Marine deep cycle battery. Hubby removed the battery so I could clean up, neutralize spilled acid & repaint the metal. Hubby hurt his back removing the battery. My question: is this why many of you on the forum have gone to in-line 6Volt batteries? 12 volts are heavy 75-85#, how heavy is a good Marine 6 volt battery? Any suggestions on how to get that heavy battery back in? I don't see good enough structure for a block & tackle pully.

I have a hard time with batteries. The Monty was plugged into home/shore power & battery switch was "off" in the convenience center, I killed the first battery. I didn't realize there was a constant drain & we need to add an off switch to the battery. Now, I've overcharged the 2nd battery & acid spilled out of the battery & battery box & made a mess.
