Blocking of abandoned water lines

I'm reducing a 2 water heater boat to just one and need to block off several re circulation lines from the engine. What would you recommend I use to cap off the soon to be unused lines other than a large bolt and clamp?

Replace the threaded hose barbs on the engine with threaded plugs and remove the offending hoses.

Unfortunately there are two Y's at different locations on the engine and I still need to access one line off of each Y.
