Simple. Contact the manufacturer of the radio (I'm assuming that's what your microphone is connected to), and ask them for a replacement mic cord. I did just that a couple years ago (Standard Horizon) after I cought my cord in a rotating buffer.
I'll warn you ahead of time, you'll have to be pretty good at soldering to solder these small wires without burning something up.
Depending on the model if it is Raymarine the cords are available from Raymarine or from West Marine.* You can get the part number for the cord from Raymarine then have West Marine get it for you.* Mine was $47.00 plus shipping through Raymarine and $47.00 from West Marine at the store*I order it through.
No soldering on mine just a plug in.* Raymarine RAY 215 DSC VHF radio Mic cord part # R49060
My RAM mic was discontinued and no longer available (even on ebay) but Standard Horizion still had white replacement cords.* I wanted black, so I went to the auto parts store and bought some vinyl spray paint, stretched the cord out and cleaned and painted it.* It worked fine.
The cord was just that, a cord.* I had to solder one end to the mictophone circuit board and the other end to the original plug.
