battery position

For those folks that use trolling motors for auxilary power, where do you position the battery in the boat so that it does not slide (or worse)when heeled?

I positioned my battery amidships on the port side next to the tabernacle.....I placed a couple of screw eyes into the wood so I could secure the battery with shock chords......I also placed the battery in a battery box so i wouldn't have to worry about about battery acid getting onto stuff........Steve Ungberg

Have you seen the battery powered outboards that West Marine is

Have you seen the battery powered outboards that West Marine is selling? They look like a gas outboard. The battery is where the gas tank would be, so no battery box in cockpit. I don't know anyone who has one, but they look impressive.

Thanks- that was my line of reasoning.
