The proper inexpensive connector strip is the Newmar. The expensive way is a pass through box.

Thanks for the link...that's waht I was talking about earlier...they are sometimes called "eurostyle"....they aren't weathertight so I'm guessing a "pass through" is what you are calling a weathertight enclosure?

The Newmars are also called euro style.

You can build your own with a NEMA (not NMEA) 4R enclosure an newmar strips or you can buy one complete. It will cost just about as much to build as to buy.

just use a standard RJ45 jack and a 568B data socket. easy to wire/crimp and nothing to worry about. you can put the RJ45 on the device side and then put a box or wall jack on the receiving end. they can hold 8 wires and will cost you less than $20US.

You could use a RJ45 plug on each cable and connect them with a coupler.

BUT: They are nowhere near waterproof or watertight. They are not designed for moist or corrosive environments such as a boat. This might be a solution for the interior of a trawler or boat with a cabin, but it's not the best plan regardless.
