Default Battery Cable

My current set up is the house & start battery located in the jump seat stern area. I want to move one battery to the other jump seat in the stern to give me more room. I currently have 4 gauge wire connecting the 2 batteries. The run will be around 6-8' and it will be just to connect the batteries in parallel. Will 4 gauge work or should I go bigger?

While I'm sure it would be fine for just connecting batteries in parallel, 2 gage would make me feel better if your main battery crapped out and you had to start the engine from the one that is 8' away.
