As long as the batteries are in a battery box, I don't see it being a major issue. A small ventilator would help keep the compartment well-ventilated, which would prevent the buildup of hydrogen gas, and help keep the temperatures lower, which helps the alternator and other engine accessories work better and last longer. Batteries are often stored in engine compartments and isn't really a problem.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
