So, here is the wire I found on Amazon. It's tinned 12-2 marine wire.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MI5EOGG/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A1YXTETT9IAQMV&psc=1

My question is whether tinned wire is OK. I'm guessing it is, since it's marine wire, but I've never used tinned wire in the past and want to make sure before I spend the money on it.

@bullet20dc Do you have feedback on this?

Tinned is what you want for your application. Don't have the problems with corrosion that you would with regular copper.  :thumbup:

tinned is what you should be using in any marine environment  Helps keep down corrosion on the copper  ( the green crap)

@Nightmare @bullet20dc Thank you. That's what I figured, but wanted to be sure  :thumbup:

My coil of wire arrived today.

Now I'm actually thinking of adding a separate fuse block under my console just to run my electronics off of.

https://amzn.to/2SLQNxZ

Then I can run a dedicated wire from the battery to the fuse block, allowing me then to run direct from the fuse block to each fish finder. This would give me a built in fuse for each unit and keep the fish finders on their own dedicated circuit.

Humminbird has also supplied me with a choke that they want me to install at the head of the run, right at the battery, that they say will help eliminate interference. So I will be doing that too.
