RE: Cable Crimper

"FYI solder is a big ABYC no no on boats."

I understand their reluctance on starting cable , usually unfused, a starter can create enough heat to actually melt the solder and spray it out of the terminal end.

Not a hassle with well crimped ends as there should be little room for solder.

I think the ABYC fears builders that will use JUST solder for both the mechanical and electrical requirements .
