Yeah, I do believe that all wet-cell batteries should be in a vented compartment. It's been years since my last power boat, but I do recall that these batteries give off explosive gas (hydrogen sulfide, maybe?) when charging. May not be an issue if you remove the battery to charge.
Your lucky, I give all battery advice at no charge. . .
which is about all the advice is worth anyway.
