I used duplex cable from a jumper cable set, with the endclips cut off, and connectors from Cabela's or bass pro, I forget which. Total cosy <$25.00.

Thanks for the note-I ended up using jumper cable for the wire too. Used 4 guage (slight overkill) but calculated yoltage drop from battery in console to transom is below 1/2 volt. Terminations at that size were almost a separate project!
