Go with good terminals, like those from Ancor or FTZ and either get a proper battery terminal crimping tool or order the cables from Genuinedealz.com and have them crimp the terminals on for you. Add adhesive lined shrink tubing to further seal them.

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.
