Logos...LOL...sorry to put you through all that! You mentioned you were in Consumer Electronics before boat stuff. In the industry we refer to that as CE! Sorry for the confusion...but it was an interesting read anyway!

You can also strip the ends of the two wires and twist them together, then seal it with some bubble yum.

Sorry, couldn't resist the temptation ...

that boat was there when I was... was there for it's frenzied completion. Things were tense at the end but the product was superb, farharbour39 "container yacht" and I worked on the 1st production model (built in europe) that came back for quality assurance purposes, testing... I was on and off the prototype and may have done some small things but Adrianne was on that while I was on the 52' Sailing Cat recently commissioned...

logos ...the "Inbox" was here in NC last week and I got a tour from the owners and made a post or two here about it. Nice folks...very happy with the boat and they have shipped it all over in the last couple of years.

That's fun, something my hands have touched and others. The craftsmen that worked on that boat were top notch. Seamus, Rick, Adrianne, Todd (not me) and of course Steve, Mike, and Vic and others. They are all still there except Todd. It was a "baby" of the works. But everything kind of is... have to go for now...

The correct answer is both.

Solder and then crimp electrical connections.

Glad I could help...

Actually, soldering isn't recommended... crimping with adhesive lined heat shrink tubing is really the best way to go.

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.

If you want to do crimp and solder you really should crimp first then flow the solder into it. But Dog is right in the marine world crimping, with the proper tools and crimp terminals is the preferred method..

You really should read the entire thread..

Why isn't soldering recommended on a boat ?

I assume it is because of the motion of the boat, that the movement makes the wires eventually break at the boundary between the solder and the wire because the solder can't flex, is that it ?

The only other thing I can think of is that the salt might affect the solder in some way, but I doubt that is true since it is mostly lead.
