Default Battery Placement/CG on 44" 12lb. Hydro

I am converting a scale model of a 1976 Gold Cup winning Hydroplane (Miss US) that is 44" L x 20"-14"W at total weight of 12-13 lbs. with a Leopord 4092 electric motor, 200A ESC, and 2 - 5000 mAh 4S 70C batteries. I need advice and experience as to where to place these for balance on the CG of the boat. Where is the CG on such a hydro? Is it at 33% aft of the sponson tips? Your help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
