RIB Wiring - Arctic Cable??

Adding accessories to my rib - deck lights, nav lights and tidying up some wiring.

I have been told I need to use Arctic Flex cable to withstand being outdoors, salt, oils, etc

I am looking for 2 core cable so its not too bulky. Ordered 100m from CPC Farnell, but its been cancelled as discontinued.

Is this the correct cable to use or are there better ones for ribs? CPC was around 45 for 100m reel..

What does anyone else use and where do you buy it? Id like to order some online to hopefully get it by the weekend.. Thanks!!

I allways uses tinned cable, it is dearer than arctic cable but will last much longer as it does not go black if salt air gets to it as quickly.
Available from lots of places.
