Bay Area source for marine electrical Supplies?

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there better than Svendsen's to buy marine grade electrical supplies from ? Or alternate market with similar specifications (Tinned copper, flexible etc) 

Will be re-wiring 40' sailboat, so it's worth a bit of a drive to save. 

e.g. West marine 2/0 battery cable $8.99/foot, and can order online at ~$5.5

Svendsen's in Alameda used to be fairly good for run-of-the-mill electrical solutions. The inventory in Richmond is much smaller and because one cannot browse and the staff isn't very knowledgable, it's no longer really viable.

Most things can be purchased at DigiKey, Mouser or Allied, usually at lower prices.

The new Alameda store (up at Bay Ship, nearly on the old Navy base) has a bigger selection and more accessible)

I'll check on the electrical distributors, didn't know they stocked marine grade stuff
