Not being familiar with the layout of your boat, I'd go along with the others and say use the space, but probably not for an emergency bilge pump. By definition, an emergency bilge pump is for an emergency. What is the emergency that a bilge pump will help with? Water incursion. Since water tends to run to the low point, and since salt water and batteries don't mix well, I'd not put the battery for that pump in that location. Kind of like keep the spare key to your safe, inside the safe.

Now, not all of us have emergency bilge pumps. We have normal bilge pumps designed for more standard water issues. I certainly don't have an emergency pump.
