Default 12 Volt Take-off for my trolling motor

Hi Guys,

I have been trying to explain what I want to the HomeDepot guys and everyone looks at me like I am nuts (which is not altogether too far from the truth) but here is what I want to do. I have a 12 volt trolling motor I just bought for my pontoon and it has the rings for connecting to a battery. i want to have a box that I can build that will mount near where the battery is but where I can EASILY connect and disconnect the trolling motor since I take if off the boat every time I am done using it. If connectors will work, that is fine. If I can build a take-off or something like that, how do I go about building it?

All I want to do is be able to connect and disconnect the wires easily and quickly and make it look good, most likely inside a water-proof box I mount somewhere on the front of my pontoon.

Thanks for your help! I am not an electrician but I know you guys can help where the "Pros" at HomeDepot cannot!
