Short answer YES
I contacted East Penn and the tech rep confirmed that with their AGM line there is no different plate design for start or deep cycle... all of their AGMs will do both equally so no big advantage using AGM GCs like there is w FLA. Supporting the above East Penn AGMs spec both AH and CCA for all sizes.
On my boat I am in the process of preping wiring & area to install four GP31 AGMs for my house bank and two GP31 AGMs for my start and thruster bank.
That should provide the most flexibility of eliminating a bad batty or two or more and combining remaining into one bank (of similar design & age) and only replace those that are bad.
I considered using AGM GC2S but didn't see any advantage vs the GP31s.
