Actually, that's probably a pretty valid concern for something like that, where it's an island in the middle, and only held down by the silicone glue. Before you finish it, it might be worth carving some holes in the middle layers and putting some bricks or rocks in, and try and get it as close to neutral buoyancy as possible.
