1.5mm wire is about the most you'll get into a red connector.

Grease filled and flame retardant, this connector protects against corrosion in damp conditions. Handles 22-14 AWG solid or stranded wire. Self-stripping U contacts for mechanical strength and electrical conductivity.

They're Scotclok's, and shouldn't be any where near a boat! Do it cheap, do it twice as my granny used to say.

Scotchloks were used by phone installers years ago, for water resistant connections in damp or potentially damp conditions (like under the house.)

They are bulky, not all that reliable (as I recall), and have minimal contact between the wire conductor and the connector conductor (meaning not really suitable for high current applications.) Plus they're fairly pricey when compared with solder and heat shrink (phone installers passed on the cost to the user in one way or another, so they didn't care.)

They are, however, fast to install; and for low current applications where bulk isn't an issue are pretty handy.

Forgot to mention that there is a wide variety of Scotchlok connectors, from simple wire nuts, to the flip connect (standard trailer wire kit) connectors/splices, to the silicone filled "waterproof" connectors. Make sure you look at what you're ordering if you go that route.

These are very good when used with the male equivalent. Can recommend the company which also has excellent after sales backup.

DT06-2S Plug and 1m of cable - 4.99 : LED Lights, Marker Truck LED Vehicle Lighting Trailers Commercial Lightbars Warning Lights Land Rover

And very good distribution boards
