Battery in the ER Bilge ok?

Right now my boat has no house bank. 2 lehmans and one battery for each engine. Each battery is in front of each engine. For now I'd like to install a dedicated generator battery, with only a backup bilge pump on it.

In these pics the floor between the engines is removed (painted it) and I was wondering if there is anything wrong with putting a battery or 2 under the floor, but spaced off the bottom so water could pass, and possibly secured to the stringer on the side. Of course it would be in a box and secured. That black/grey tote is just there for size but I normally don't keep anything down there.
the space is 42x17x12

Bounus question: can yall confirm that this is a through hull sounder that's been glued in on the last pics... that's what I think it is.
Thanks!
