does anyone of maybe everyone here uses the "official US Coast Gaurd" wiring colours? As, you know I am working on wiring up my project and was woundering if I "have to" use the marine grade wiring?

Hi. I am pretty positive that wiring color is not an issue. Just make sure you get the right gauge for the job.

Agreed. I'm not even using tinned wire and I never even considered color as far as the Coast Gaurd goes. I purchased red for positive and black for negative just to simplify things.
