As regards the connections - I'd use a DECENT crimper (one of the ones from around $100) with decent heat shrink butts. That will be extremely strong and waterproof. A lot of people then put the connections in a junction box. Make sure they are as high out of the bilge as you can!

It may be worth getting an additional small automatic bilge pump (rule does a 500GPM one) and mount that right at the bilge bottom, with a check valve or a downsized outlet. That way it will take care of any nuisance water, while your other (hopefully vastly bigger) bilge pump will handle any major water ingress.
