Due to tight space I need a spur cable with an elbow on one end and a straight connector on the other. I've got a few short spur cables left over and some with elbows on both ends. I would like to connect two of these end to end but Raymarine don't supply a connector for spur cables. Can I cut the plugs off and solder the cores together? Obviously I would then insulate the cores and put heat shrink sleeve over the joint.

Yep.

It's not a method listed in the N2k standard, which allows either Mini-C or Micro-C connectors, or terminal strips in an enclosure. But it will work perfectly well.

I joined a Simnet to a Seatalk NG cable the other day and it works fine (I left the power wires unconnected so we don't mix these across networks)
