Batteries do fail, so being paranoid, I'd rather go to a pair of 4Ds or multiple batteries. If the 8D fails, you're in trouble. If you've got a couple, you can isolate the defective one and still enjoy the sail.
To me, the best thing about 6V "golf cart" batteries aside from the cost and weight, is that you don't lose a 12V battery if you have a failure. You lose 1/2 of the 12V bank and getting a 6V battery can be significantly cheaper than buying a 12V one.
