I'm just guessing, but they look like they are spaces for two strongboxes e.g. https://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showpart.pl?partnum=30-07-5300 (many versions from the same mould exist- search 'strongbox' on PlaymoDB), though these are not included with the set.
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)
