Best source for marine wire?

I tend to buy UL-1426 marine wire in bursts.  I think I last bought it in quantity about two years ago.  It would seem my supply is mostly depleted.  I've bought battery cable from GenuineDealz (hate the name, very happy with the product) and was just curious if others have a source they like and could recommend?

I used GenuineDealz as well and used to have them do my ends, but have since in the last year just ordered my stock from Fisheries Supply (I'm spoiled because they're local) and done ends myself.

I highly recommend reading Making your own Battery Cables and Marine Wire Termination by Compass Marine over on Marine How To if you do your own crimps. I have the crimpers he recommends both for standard wire and battery wire and they make absolutely excellent crimps. Saves a ton of money having someone else do it, and gives you the ability to get things to the exact length, etc.
