Greg's marine wire will coil up or spool up whatever lengths you need (sold by the foot) for your project. They got most of the wiring "stuff" you need.
BE SURE to use type 3 stranding, heat shrink terminals and tinned wire.

Follow up on my Malahini electrical. I added a D.C. Cigarette lighter type outlet to run the blower for inflating the tube and charging phones. The DC inflator blower blew the 10 amp fuse, switched to a 15 amp, its holding so far.
