Re: Need high-current 12VDC deck plug

If you can't conveniently source watertight bulkhead plugs that you like, consider just installing a pair of 1/4x20 stianless bolts through the deck, and then bolting down the cables to either side of them using conventional battery lugs. It isn't high tech, but it is simple and solid, and a minute with a ratchet (or wing nuts) does the connect and disconnect.
