More to do with their pricing structure and packaging of brands. If a dealer does not choose to stock the Ancor line of wire and crimp products for example they (Marinco) yank the discount structure on Marinco and other the other lines.MaineSail: Ancor scam ?
So I saw this post, and while I am referencing Don Casey's Sailboat Electrics Simplified, I still have this question: Can I have a wire that is "too big"? And I don't mean a 2 gauge(AWG) wire for a 25 watt light, but if I bought a 12 gauge wire to run my electronics (which include VHF, knot meter, cabin lights, small cabin fan, steaming light, running lights, bilge pump...and I think that is it actually), would that be a big enough gauge. And I also mean that they will be on separate circuits. Thanks in advance!
That's actually where I am buying from and only paying fifty cents more.
The boat is already set up with a plug, but it is just a plug that a normal extension cord connects to, which I know is not the same as a shore power connection. But should I still install the right connection while I am doing this, even if I decide not to install AC wiring? Another words, will I benefit from the connection if I only have DC?
