Battery Location

The battery in Merry Lynn was originally under the V-berth, but in order to move the weight back I attached a couple of footman's loops to the transom. I put the battery in a battery case with a strap around it and through the loops. The strap keeps the battery from shifting. In addition, the battery in the lazarette is convenient to the starter and charger in the outboard. I have been thinking of putting a charger on board. I was thinking of going up under the side, behind the starboard seat. It would be out of the weather, with a clear path to the battery, but with good ventilation. Only downside would be limited accessibility. Best bet would probably be some kind of latching mechanism.
