I am rebuilding a 2005 Nautique 226 TE... The previous owner left this boat docked in salt water and caused much damage to it. Some of us (me) learn the hard way not to buy a salt water boat!!!

I am to a point in the project where I am testing the wiring and am finding most of the connectors around the boat have corroded pins and are not working well. I can find exact replacement connectors easily enough, but I was wondering if one of you might have a suggestion for an upgraded water tight marine wire connector. If I have my way, this boat will never see salt water again, regardless, I want to put the best possible parts in if I am going to be in there replacing them. The factory connectors are OK, but are they the "best"?

The image has an example of the connectors used all around the boat. This one (stbd ballast drain pump) was covered in black crud (mold of some kind, I think) until I pressure washed it, but the copper pins inside are totally crusted over and impossible to clean, at least what I have tried has not worked.
