I've used some solder/shrink connectors on my boat. Just wondering what the opinions are on these type connectors. If you havn't seen them, it is a piece of thick shrink tube with a band of solder in the middle. The wires are inserted into the solder band from both sides, and the whole thing is heated with a heat gun until the solder melts. The result is a small solder joint encased in a very rigid piece of plastic.

My boat won't be going anywhere that I can't swim to shore from, so I won't be changing the connectors no matter what, just wondering if these sound like good connections.
