Not sure what 6/4 cable is but I have used Greg's Marine Wire Supply twice with good and fast results.

6/4 is quite heavy, what do you plan on running off it,? Even at lengths exeeding 200', 8 or 10 GA will carry virtually any normal load.

He's looking for long runs of 50A, 120/240V shore service...50A is 6GA, 4 conductor, not cheap, any way you slice it....

Are yellow and white the only ones appropriate? Just wondering because he didn't say what it was for...

As so often happens, he didn't say what it was for so that limits the value of any responses other than direct links to suppliers.

My suggestion - do a web search for what you are looking for. If it's available, a web search wil find it.

Well, by calling it dock cable, and needed in yellow or white, it indicates a shore power cable. I'd call Ward's Marine Electric in Ft. Lauderdale and see if they can refer a source or sell it in bulk, I know they make custom cables. Probably call the guy at Genuinedealz too.

I think I would have used the term "shore power cable" if that's what I meant. "Dock cable" might mean the same thing to some people or to others it might mean cable used to wire a dock.
