Question What kind of terminal connector is this?

I'm trying to find the name for this type of terminal connector. It is for my outboard motor. It is quick disconnect and weatherproof. The outside, clear, soft plastic is sealed at the wire that goes through it. When the two ends are connected the clear plastic forms a seal to protect the connection. The inside connectors are male and female. It looks like the outside might be crimped on the wire or the wire may just push through the end and then the terminals are crimped on.

I'm sure it has a name but I cannot locate anything like this. It's possible it's proprietary since it's for an outboard motor application.

The soft, clear plastic isn't heat shrink. It's fairly thick plastic and the wires pull apart, each having its own clear plastic shield. In this case it's 6 wires that connect to the voltage regulator. The quick disconnect allows you to swap out a new regulator without having to cut and add new connectors. The plastic seals and keep out water and oil. It's definitely a marine application. All of the wires on the motor are connected this way.

Thanks, that looks closer to what I need. They must shrink only the part that goes around the wire and leave the part on the connector alone so you can easily separate them. I have other bullet connectors but they don't have the heat shrink as part of the terminal. I ordered them from Amazon, will reply back after they arrive and let you know if they are the same.

Glad I don't have to buy another tool.

The heat shrink bullet connectors arrived yesterday. It's not what I was looking for but since I bought 100 of the buggers I'll keep them. I replaced the one on the voltage regulator. The heat shrink does seal to the wire but the bullet connectors are at the edge of the heat shrink. They don't go inside like the ones already on the wires. In the picture you can see the clear one has the bullets up inside the plastic while the blue one is nearly edge to edge. I was able to shrink the blue one down to nearly close the two halves. When I get the motor together again I'll probably put some Permatex Ultra Black around the edge to make a better seal.

Yeah, I have a tub of all of those things. Now I have more. The ones on an outboard are waterproof/oil proof. The bullet connector is placed on each wire, heated to seal it at the insulation. When you put the connectors together they actually go inside the insulation and form a seal over the male and female connectors. there's about 1/4" insulation that overlaps and touches. None of the connectors is exposed and the entire connection is covered with (in this case) the clear sleeve.
Now that I have 100 of these I'll just make the one work. I Googled Mercury bullet connector and found the ones I really wanted. If these aren't sufficient I'll order them.

Thanks, everyone, for your help.
