Re: Thoughts on whether I should relocate my house batteries ...

I believe the battery system would be a lot more efficient if all the cables were the same length, which it sounds like your new plan would achieve. Keep in mind that when a battery out-gasses those fumes are explosive, so proper venting of the compartment (under the settee in this case) is a must.
Anything on a boat that is easily serviced is going to be serviced more regularly, which is a good thing.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
