As for the quotes, I just use the quote button, and then edit the text if I don't want all of it in there, of copy and paste multiple times before editing if I want multiple quote boxes. I find it's easier than trying to manually enter in the proper quote brackets.

What I am getting from this is that quotes are important in the crimping process as well...

Another simple technique is to tie the corresponding wires together and then twist the heck out of the stripped portions and then electrical tape the heck out of it (with good marine grade tape of course)....it will survive the tug test but not many others...

I've worked on some houses where that was the thought also. The connection was so reliable, that they decided not to put it into a junction box, but just bury it behind the drywall.

I have too - and will do it if in a pinch - but nah either the crimping or soldering - both actually if done properly with the right materials imho work equally as well... the problem with crimps is there is one moisture point ingress unless the heat shrink cover where the spade starts....it doesn't take much and the crimp will outlast the wiring any day as it doesn't suck moisture...my last post was merely in jest....

The one down in New Bedford had some of the Ancor electrical terminals, along with the supplies one would need to make docks. This is probably due to the importance of the waterfront and fishing industry in the area.

BTW, the brand is Ancor, not Anchor, which is what you've got too many of to begin with.

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.

Is that code ? I always thought if your behind drywall, your in a junction box. That is what I've always done.
