West Marine carries 10 gauge in white, although I'm guessing you probably don't want to buy marine tinned wire at $1.45 a foot.

www.mcmaster.com is your friend. Super fast shipping. I wired my whole boat with mcmaster products. They have tinned wire as well.

Save yourself a big headache and run over to Lowe's or Home Depot.  They have the #10 in stranded white.  You can buy it by the foot.

I didn't do it... ok, it was me.

Just curious, why are you running white wire?

Typical color code is;

Main, or Battery = Red
Ground = Black
Start= Yellow
Start safety = Yellow w/Red Tracer
Ignition = Purple
Fuel Sender = Pink
Oil Sender = Blue
Water Temp = Tan
Alternator Excite = Red w/Blue Tracer

The reason I'm wondering is besause if a regular wiring schematic is used it makes troubleshooting easier.

You can also get the above colors at NAPA, they even stock the Marine Spec. wire through the Balkamp line.

Again, just curious if I am missing something.

  • Boat #2: 19' Bubble deck Jet BBC Berkeley
If i get some free time tonight at work, ill play with it and post it for everyone to see.

Time to man up and yank it John!  :banghead:

I bought Marine Tinned wiring and all my connectors here and saved major duckets! Great stuff, great price.

I think i will name next boat "E-Boat"

Now that's a cool link.  I found a good link for battery cables.  ROCKFORD FOSGATE power cable, #0 for $2.00 a ft.  in colors.

Probably not your best choice........ Find one of the industry standard diagrams out there.

If you are looking for a good deal on wire, check out eBay Item number: 200241626616 It comes out to be $5.62 a spool.  You can get it any cheaper than that, or anyway I can't find it cheaper.  You will still need to get #10 for red, white, and black but you can get that at Lowe's or Home Depot.
