Re: Boat wire: is SAE tinned "good enough"?

Everything you ever wanted to know about boat cable :

https://law.resource.org/pub/us/cfr/....1426.1986.pdf

Note that it does refer to an SAE standard for 50V boat cable, SAEJ1127.

So it IS possible that what you have is boat cable. See page 17 of the standard. It may be labelled with the SAE three letter code, and the temperature rating.

What does the label say, exactly?

Bristol 31.1, San Francisco Bay
