thru-hull electric connector - at least 13 pins

I'm trying to find a decent supplier of thru-hull connectors that will provide up to 13 pins in one male-female connector. I have found some that give as many as 9 pins but that's about it (see http://www.marine-electronics-unlimi...onnectors.html )
My goal is to be able to have one connector that ties in 3 Raymarine instruments wind-depth-speed so that I can remove the instrument "panel" when I want to. These 3 instruments have 5, 5 & 3 wires each.
I did find a supplier from the UK that manufactures a product called Dri-Plug http://www.driplug.com/ - they make one connector that provides 19 pins but with the British pound at $1.82 USD we're talking about 130 bucks - ouch.
Any suggestions are welcome.
