I remember seeing that box on your older website. One of the best thought out I have seen.

As Jeff posted batteries should be near the engine. Size wire for any load for the desired voltage drop. Even with a large load like a windlass or thruster forward a battery in the bow seldom makes sense. If you are using an ACR between the aft and forward banks the wires run will have to be large anyway. And then there is the maintenance issue of another battery in some cases - less of an issue with AGM batteries.

boatpoker is on a distinguished road
ABYC "Storage Batteries" Standard E-10 requires in part that batteries be vented outside of accommodation spaces and that batteries be secured so as not to move more than one inch in any direction, be contained in boxes or trays resistant to electrolyte, that positive terminals be protected by dielectric material and prohibits wing nuts as a means of securing conductors larger than 6AWG.
