ANCOR
Primary Wire, 14 Gauge, 100' Spool

Sophisticated marine electronics and instruments only operate at peak potential when supplied with power at the right voltage, which necessitates high-quality wire. Ordinary automotive-type wire can suffer a loss of conductivity after a few months in the marine environment. Corrosion takes place, and corrodes the copper conductor, when the wire’s jacket and insulation are compromised by water intrusion. Marine-grade wire from Ancor is rated for oily and wet environments because its jacket is impervious to those conditions. Each strand has a tin coating for extra corrosion resistance (note the “silver” look when you strip it). 

 

Vibration is always present on a boat, and will quickly fatigue and crack coarsely stranded wire. Ancor wire is Type 3 stranded, meaning that is has 5-10 times more copper strands than Type 2 wire, making it more flexible and fatigue resistant. They are constructed with premium vinyl insulation that is rated at 600 volts, 221°F (105°C) dry and 167°F (75°C) wet. It is also Marine UL-listed, and meets the highest ABYC standards for AC and DC use. Finally, it is based on AWG (American Wire Gauge) wire sizes, which are 6-12% larger than SAE gauge wire. So you get more current-carrying ability than from similar SAE wire.

    Comments about Primary Wire, 14 Gauge, 100 Spool:

    This is ultra top quality conductor. So many applications do not need two stran red/black marine grade wire. I have a 100 feet roll of each, red, black and white as well as the two stran red/black in 14 AWG.This covers 95% of all my marine applications. I have use it in the most hostile salt Marine environment and have had zero corrosion failures. It comes in smaller rolls, but West Marine makes it economical to buy 100 feet and be confident you won't run out at the worst moment. Remember, Murphey was an optimist and never owned a boat.
