In general, on a boat, you want to have sealed connectors, like the ones I've linked to in my previous post. The blind wire connectors are not really suitable for use on a boat, since they'll trap water against the wires should they get wet. The adhesive-lined heat shrink covered butt-splice step down terminals are the best way to go. If you're going to be working on your boat for any larger projects having the crimping tool and using the right crimp terminals will make your job a lot easier and the connections last a lot longer.

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.
