These are very good connectors, Used by Raymarine on thier tiller pilots and are avail through most any large electrical supply house, mouser, newark, etc etc

sailingdog Why not do two nine-pin connectors, that would leave you some room for expansion.

You might be far better off putting the actual instruments inside the boat and using repeater displays on the exterior of the boat. Then you would only need to run a single three-wire SeaTalk cable through the deck. Much simpler...and easier. Wiring the panel will also be much easier.

Also, if someone nicks your external panel, you'll still have the original instruments inside the boat to use.

thru-hull electric connector - at least 13 pins

I'm trying to find a decent supplier of thru-hull connectors that will provide up to 13 pins in one male-female connector. I have found some that give as many as 9 pins but that's about it (see http://www.marine-electronics-unlimi...onnectors.html )
My goal is to be able to have one connector that ties in 3 Raymarine instruments wind-depth-speed so that I can remove the instrument "panel" when I want to. These 3 instruments have 5, 5 & 3 wires each.
I did find a supplier from the UK that manufactures a product called Dri-Plug - they make one connector that provides 19 pins but with the British pound at $1.82 USD we're talking about 130 bucks - ouch.
Any suggestions are welcome.
