Tinned copper cable

Interested in this but need to measure the cross-sectional area of the stuff that's already on the boat before I pull the trigger. If someone else makes you an offer first then no worries, but will let you know once I know what size I need. Suspect it may be too big but will confirm.

Is that 2 core? IE red and the black together or 2 x single lengths?

You can't really have too big Andy, too small on the other hand is a different matter

I know, but the bigger the cable, the harder it is to make a good job of fitting cable end crimps which is why I'd rather go for the "right" size instead of over-sized.

Yeah, but that requires me to buy the crimping tool and I already have plenty of tools that I bought for a single, one off job (anyone want a valve spring compressor, or a pair of coil spring compressors, or a ball joint fitting & removal tool?). The smaller the diameter the better the job I can do with the tools I already have available.

Or, I might even break out the soldering iron instead.

Can't beat having the right tool for the job!!

2 x separate lengths mate. 

I am sure that is exactly what Jonc desperately needs, but must be 2 core. Geoff.:classic_wink:

Will have to pass on this I'm afraid. The stuff I need is 25mm2.

It really is a shame that he hasn’t got it in other colours .

 I'm surprised he didn't have them in rainbow stripes.

The only draw back with rainbow coloured cable is if you connect it the wrong way around changing the polarity
