You shouldn't be using a spade connector on a boat, unless it has the upturned ends. Electrical terminals on a boat are supposed to be captive, which is why ring terminals are generally used, except where the screws are captive, and then spade terminals with the upturned tips are used instead.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
