I am getting ready to finish putting my control panel together and have been looking for a cable to connect with my inline GFCI (20A) rating, and was wondering if the cable below would work. I am almost positive that it should be fine for a 20A system, but the whole "boat wire" thing is throwing me off, adn I just wanted to get verification that this would be sufficient before I drop $. Thanks for the help, sorry it is kind of a dumb question!

yes, it would work, but in my opinion, you can get a much nicer cable for a much better price.

Examples:

http://www.stayonline.com/detail.aspx?ID=18161

There are other cables on that site, too.

These don't have free shipping, but are cheaper per foot, and have a MUCH nicer outer jacket on them than that PVC jacket on the ebay cable.

This one has a PVC jacket like the ebay cable, but it is only $0.65/foot

awesome, they actually have a flanged receptacle that I need as well, so this justifies the shipping. Thanks for the heads up!
