Just wanted to mention that I found it useful to stock up on the common sizes of crimps - you can save a fortune at Amazon or whatever, buying an Ancor assortment, compared to the blister packs at West Marine.

Also this place is a good place for marine electrical stuff :

Personally, I like to have crimps, (including heat shrinkable butt connectors - very useful!) 14 gauge wire (2 core boat cable), heat shrink, cable ties, insulation tape, solder. and the tools (gas soldering iron, heat gun for heat shrink, crimper, wire stripper) all in a box labelled "electrical".

That way, when a repair is needed, I have the stuff to do it right.
