Boat Wiring

After a thread awhile back on batteries, I did a lot of research on tinned wire. Most of what I found was tinning was not needed or was even detrimental. I've always tinned, but I'm now going the other way. Heat shrink is better against corrosion than tinning. When you tin, you effectively turn a stranded wire in to a solid wire that is way more subject to failure in a vibrating environment. I'm going to dig deeper in to this.
