Good luck!
Only adhesive-lined heat shrink tubing really gives a water tight seal. Normal heat shrink tubing gives a seal, but is not water-tight as capiliary action will wick water up in to the tubing.

And Jorjo... that just mean's you're an Irish illiterate @$$.

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.
