Hi Knotty,
Do you know where bestboatwire is located? Lots of time shipping is the real cost to me out here in the Pacific.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Based on a quick check as far as I can tell you can pay any price for the shipping baseed on these prices. The internet says they are in Kentucky. Compare it to a West Marine and see how expensive it can really get. I'm sure they can tell you the weight per foot.

I buy wire on ebay. It is new wire, off a spool. Read the specs on marine wire from west marine and make sure they match up to any wire you mght buy on ebay. So far everything I have bought has been of good quality.

The ebay store I purchase through will save your oders for you until you are ready to ship. that way it is just one shipping fee.

The last time I bought wire I got 100 feet of 14 gauge, 50' of red 50' of black, cost around 20 bucks with shipping.

Hi John

They ship direct from the manufacturer (Pacer) in Florida. They'll work with you on shipping if you send them an e-mail. They have overstock up in Montreal, that's what I've been buying for now.

As Rick suggested, bestboatwire.com indicate that their orders ship from Pacer Marine* in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
