Marine cable

Anybody got a source for this where it can be bought by the metre? I mean the proper tinned marine grade cable. Would prefer flex as this can be stripped for singles and most of the runs would be better in flex anyway.

Had good service from genuinedealz.com in America. Much cheaper than Merlin for exactly the same product made by Ancor marine.

My local Aquafax wont do individual lengths

But I found a place that does.

Plymouth area only though as far as I can tell.
Heaps of it to.

May do p+p if you order enough, or have a normal Western Electrical branch near you?

SOZ but probably not because your in Scotland. Doh..

I used "quality" trailer lighting cable and have terminated the whole 7 core end in an IP62 (I think) rated box on the frame - then broke out from there. Theory is that if the box is selaed, the cable should survive (and if the cables to the lights don't it's a short run to replace). Console end has a huge lump of silicon to seal it, and the crimps are similarly gooped...

Theory being that 7 cores will give all & more that i'll ever need up there + a couple of spares. Easier to run one multicore than lots of singles as well.


I'll no doubt be posting in a couple of years warning you all against using trailer cable...... watch this space!
