UTS Hi seal connector?

I am thinking of moving my thru deck mast wiring out of the base of the mast. The, UTS Hi seal connector, looks promising as a fitting. Does anyone have any experience with this connector or another one that works well?

UTS Hi seal - Sealed unmated / Product range list / Products / SOURIAU - Industrial Interconnect Systems and Connector solutions

Thanks,

No experience with that connector.

I think it is better to lead the wires below to a terminal block as it keeps all connections dry. Lead thru a swan neck or something like this: Salty John: Cableport and other fine boat and yacht chandlery products.

I have one and it works well.

Brian,

Thanks. An interesting solution. I need a disconnect so when I step the mast I can easily move the base to the stern for stowage. I am working on a solution for the wiring to allow me to self step the mast. A secure, quick coupling is necessary.
