10ga is sufficient for a typical bass boat. Make sure the inline fuse wire to the battery is 10ga as well.

A 10 ga. for each "big" unit you have will be sufficient.

How many units are you planning on having up there?

I wish you'd post where you got it. The one listed on Amazon is only 13 feet long. Do you remember what you paid for 100 feet? Thanks Dozer!
