fuel bladder placement

I am doing the Caribbean 1500 ( Hampton Virginia to Tortolla). I have a 46 foot boat.

We have purchased a 50 gallon fuel bladder for additional fuel reserve. We are planning on putting it on the deck in front of the mast. My question is weight and placement of that weight for optimal safety and boat handling. Below in the bilge would be the best place for the weight but I have no room below.

Any body got any experience or advice?
