Are we talking about the terminals that attach to the battery or how to attach them to the cable?

Batteries for marine use should have threaded stud terminals so the correct terminal on the cable should be a ring terminal. And throw away the wingnut that may come on the battery. Use a standard SS hex nut.

For attaching the terminal to the cable, buy your cable and terminals at West Marine and they will let you use their crimper for free. Or order everything from Marine Wiring, Boat Cable and Electrical or similar vendors and they will install the terminals for a nominal fee.
