Thanks for all.
Plan: make some decent wood/fiberglass boxes for the current batteries and be ready to modify/rebuild the boxes when the current batteries need replacement (since 2 of 3 are new).
Moving the house bank to the after side of the bulkhead should make them much more available for maintenance, get weight (a lot of lead) off the extreme aft end of the boat (reducing hobby horsing, they say), and open up the packing gland and shaft for service.
Final plus, batteries are closer to the main loads, reducing length and resistance in wire runs.
AOK.
Now, what to do with all the extra space in the back of the engine room?
By the way, how can one even climb back there over the old 4-108 without opening the cockpit hatch?
