Default Help: waterproof plug/connector to swap tower speaker b/w boat and atv

I recently purchased JL audio VEX tower speakers for the t top of my boat. I would like to be able to easily take them on and off the boat so they can be shared with an ATV or stored indoors. I need help finding a waterproof/weather resistant plug/connector that would allow me to do this this. It would obviously need to handle the ~75 watts or so coming from the amp to the speaker. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

those don't look waterproof.

keep in mind nothing will be waterproof when unplugged. so if the speakers are stored inside, the boat plugs will be getting wet / damaged if in the open

Thanks. Ordered the 5 kit from eBay. I'll have enough to just plug in empty connectors to keep them waterproof when not in use. Can't go wrong for $7. If they don't work out I can try something else.

The problem with those is that it's not marine wire.
