Good news for you , you will not need heavy wire, aka..large gauge wire as your not going to need the current carrying ability

Do you have conduits internally?since your not using heavy wire you'll be able to add some extras in case you have problems down the seaway.
If no conduit, be sure to add some zip tie "springs" to keep the wires from banging internally.
Boat wire 2or3 conductors is good, don't know how tall your mast or how long your maximum run is but #12 wire should give you more than enough current carrying ability up to 100ft or so.
