You are on the right track.
As you note the instruments each come with a spur cable.
The 5-way comes with terminators.
The problem is that you need six (6) ports:
Terminator - Speed - Depth - Wind - Power - Terminator
The four (4) in the middle can be in any order.
In addition to the instruments you could get a R70160 cabling kit that has a 5-way, a power cable, two tees, terminators, and a backbone cable. I'd put the 5-way convenient to the instruments and a tee near the electrical panel for power injection.
You said you don't plan for more devices, but if you do change your mind you can replace the tee with another 5-way for additional devices.
