    If you properly seal your connections with Liquid Electrical tape, you should be good using standard wire.

    USE TINNED WIRE ONLY!!!!!! If your going to take the time and re-wire your boat do it right. Anchor has a good line of Tinned Marine wire, you can get it a West, or if you want me to get you some it will be cheaper. I use nothing but tinned, and never use anything below 12ga for branching auxilary items. Good Luck!

    Make sure all your terminal ends and connectors are tinned as well!
