Steve, I have the exact same on my boat. It's a simple bulgin bipole plug and socket which I have connected to a cetek battery charger which you can plug and forget.

Put the rib to bed when I get home, plug in the battery charger, job done.

See below for pic of (old) plug and socket. All bright, shiny new ones now.

No way I can keep them under control! They're both as mad as a box of frogs.
