Correct, you don't need the connector.

Gary,
If you do use the connector, be very careful on the selection or amp capacity. You may be up into the pin and sleeve connector type. You may be better off just leaving some extra wire at the dash pod.

Like Pete says. This is what I have used for 8 ga. wire. Good for 50 amps.

You are connecting to a 20 amp breaker and splitting the current through 2 wires. So worse case if one wire opens is 20 amps.

Sorry but I'm not following this.

For the older boat it sounds like he added the additional positive wire in parallel with the existing wire between the 50 amp main breaker and the 20 amp ignition breaker. So if both wires are intact then a portion of the current will flow through each wire unless one opens then all the current will flow through the remaining wire. If there is a short in that path then you could see 50 amps on those wires before the main breaker opened but for normal operation the dash/ignition circuit was designed for 20 amps max. I wouldn't expect to see more than a few amps through each wire unless a failure occurred then the new connector would probably be the least of the problems. But you knew all that so what am I missing?

Re-wiring is complete. Any and every issue I had from the horn resetting perfect pass to my Nav lights causing incorrect volt and temp readings and all the annoying "chirps" when turning on blower, bilge etc.... is now resolved. I have avoided this for 4 seasons because of the perceived complexity of the job, but in the end it was pretty straight forward.

Big thanks to all of you who provided input to help me out.

Congrats. It does sound like a horrible job, but it's not really that difficult once you dig into it.

It is that first time you contemplate cutting wires in that spaghetti looking mess behind the dash that seems too much to handle. Thanks to you guys on here I was able to get it done. Some smart folks on here for sure.
