Any information on battery cable size to move batteries 12ft from back of boat to the front.

I have a 20ft Bayliner Trophy with both batteries located in at the back of the boat. I need to get rid of some of the weight due to the addition of a 4 stroke kicker motor and bracket. I want to move the batteries into my cabin on the side opposite the kicker (12' to 15' of cable will do the job. what gage battery cable would I use to accomplish this. I have a 120hp Force. Is it as easy as running the correct cable size from my new battery locations back to my transom mounted battery 1,2, or All switch?

Any help would be appreciated.
