What type wire?

Hi,
I am rewiring my mast and want to run triplex to the masthead (for an OGM trianchor). None of the triplex wire I've seen is properly colored. Instead, it is either AC black/green/white or else Bilge wire black/brown/red. Any thoughts on what to use? The bilge wire is available (the other is back ordered) so it would be my first choice simply to get on with it . . .
Thx

Just use what you have and and using coloured tape, identify the colours you want to see
