Batteries are fairly heavy, use the weight to your advantage. The front V berth is a good spot it will more balance the boat when the cockpit has more people in it or you have a heavy engine. But have it on the opposite side that the engine is on. Boats like airplanes have to have a balanced C of G. for optimum sailing performances. The lower the battery is in the hull for instance, the more help it will provide to counter act heeling.
