Stow location for batteries on PSC 34

Hi all,

I have (2) Group 24 batteries stowed in my Port cockpit locker.
Looking to add more cuz u just can't have enough when u wanna party till the sun comes up.
I think I saw someone on the PSC forum had stowed a couple batteries under the Nav Seat. Curious what sort of support was used to make fast the batteries inside of this enclosure. Given the angular mounting flexibility of AGM's I'd guess that perhaps a sideways stacking is possible as well.
Saw some very narrow batteries laid up against the hull inside of the stbd lazerette locker. Not sure where I saw it. Loooks like a possibility as well.
I just want to get the most bang for my buck. Perhaps a different Group size would allow for better overall fit. I'll maintain the (2) in cockpit locker as my starting batteries and this new set of batteries will be the house batteries.

Thanks in advance !!
Keith
