Allied wire http://www.awcwire.com seems to have everything. You would have to call them for what you are looking for, but they do have 'Flat Multi-Conductor Marine Cable' listed in 2 and 3 conductor 8-18 ga. I found them trying to find a deal on SEOOW 6/3 shore power cable.

What was the result of your inquiry with CobraWire and how did this turn out?

Do you have a guesstimate on the lengths & types you ordered?Thanks

Much to my very great frustration the hunt continues. While I did get in touch with Cobra I have not had any luck with finding a distributor. They gave me a couple of suggestions but the responses were less than helpful. I may try one more time with Cobra to see if they can point me at someone more helpful.

Does anyone here know anybody at a boat manufacturer? :)

Now that I think about it I'm going to talk to the yard manager at Brewers. Maybe they have better contacts.

Doug, why don't you buy the single colors that you want (blue & yellow) from West or Defender marine and be done with it?

Because I'm a crazy, tenacious, anal retentive, perfectionist wacko who can't back down from a challenge!!

I know it exists. I know who makes it. WHY CAN'T I BUY IT?!? :evil:

Dirty Harry once said "that a man has to know his limitations". Good luck with your search grasshopper. Since color coding is a standard, why not call up a manufacturer and ask to speak to someone in purchasing. Perhaps, they could assist you in your quest and advise you where they buy their wire.

True - and I know I haven't hit mine yet! 8)

I'm planning on calling Sabre - I'm betting I can get help from them! And maybe C&C - weren't they the ones that bought the TE moulds?

FWIW, my source for boat cable when I did my rewire project back in early 2016 was "Bestboatwire.com"

http://www.bestboatwire.com/

Good selection, good prices in my experience.
