How would I go about extending the length of cable from my battery to the solar panel for my Aquajet kit so I can place my panel somewhere farther away?

You will need a 14 gauge wire with positive and negative terminals inside, and a basic knowledge of soldering. Wire can easily be spliced anywhere in between the connection from the solar panel to the battery box. Wire should not exceed 50 ft. in length at 14 gauge to minimize the voltage drop to below 3%. If you require the panel to be even farther away than this, the wire gauge should be thicker to compensate for the distance and still minimize voltage drop.
