Rewiring Mast. What Gauge?

Thanks for all previous help. You guys are great.

I'm rewiring my U.S. Yacht 25' mast. Mast is down. Have all new LED lights to install. Have the crimper, marine heat shrink connectors. Have 50 feet of 14 ga. 14/4.

My question. Is this too heavy or extravagant? I'm a nurse (always overbuild in things we don't know much about). I am going to Fisherman's supply this weekend, can pick up 16/4 if needed (if available), and can use the 14/4 to rewire the interior.

Pasco, Wa.
