The multi-stranded AC wire you have in there is probably ther because that was all the previous owner of your boat could find. The chandlers where I live only carry boat cable with green, white and black - so you can''t really follow the ABYC color rules. The alternative would be to buy three separate wires in the right colors, but I like having that extra layer of insulation boat cable provides for wire that will be moving about inside the mast, and it''s also much less likely to snag or tangle with other wires and halyards in there.
