Re: Redoing shore power correctly

I was planning on using the crimped terminals with the marine wire. Good to see a validation of that idea.

Is the purpose of the stranded, tinned wire for flexibility (the stranding) and resistance to salt air (the tinning)? Is not having it on the boat something the Coasties would bust you for? I want to be sure I keep the boat "street legal."

(What would the nautical term for "street legal" be?)

Thanks again to everyone who responded!
