More ER space needed

I have a 1976 Gulfstar with the fiberglass fuel tank. I need space to mount a large house battery bank. I was thinking about glassing a thick sheet of marine plywood painted with bilge coat gray to the top of the tank towards the front of the boat. Then using 5200 and short screw that would not penetrate the fuel tank. Has anyone done something similar? If you have done something different or similar please tell me what you have done. I will be mounting one double 8D battery enclosure made by AC DC Inc. They have some unique good marine products. I just purchased their 2 bilge pump switch assembly that includes a counter to see if there is an increase in bilge pump operations over a time period indicating a potential problem.
Thanks for any input on mounting the house battery bank.
