CAN Bus Cable & Connector Source

I would appreciate any recommendations for a reasonably priced source for the subject. I am looking at installing such a system in a boat; likely Furuno and will be building a CAN Bus. The prices from the electronics companies for cables and connectors to connect their equipment to the bus seem really high. Thanks for any guidance.

Re: CAN Bus Cable & Connector Source

You could try Digikey or Mouser or another electronics supplier. I think many of the connectors are made by Amphenol or Molex or a similar large company. The "marine" cabling may be a bit more expensive, but getting good wire with molded connectors is worth it for much of the installation.
