Re: Is tinned boat wire necessary?
I have never seen THHN wire fail in that way. And this is why the USCG approves it. But not just any wire.
And as you pointed out, it's not cheaper. You pay for quality.
Ok, Your post #3 proves you have never read the ABYC Standards .... You stated they required tinned wire..... they don't
This post proves you have not read the US Regulations as they are laid out in Code of Federal Regulations Title 33 and 46 not in any USCG regulations. Neither these regulations nor USCG "approves" any wire.
If you have a citation that states otherwise please show it.
The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
