I wouldn't buy Ancor wire as it is generally way overpriced. I'd go with Berkshire cable, which is available from GenuineDealz.com.

If you're serious about installing AC on the boat, it would make sense to install a shorepower outlet and an AC battery charger, along with some outlets. The small inverters are great for small loads, but if you're at the dock, it would make sense to have a shorepower setup.

Basically, you'd need a shore power inlet plug, a shore power main panel, a GFCI outlet and a good AC powered battery charger.

For a battery charger, I'd recommend you go with an Iota charger, available here.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
