Squires also sell ribbon connectors and cable. Their catalogue is very useful.

Thanks for info. received: plenty of outlets to choose from. My next query is how do i connect up a foghorn,water pump &nav.lights using computer ribbon &multiplugs to 6channel receiver &whattype of ribbon &multiplug would i use.Any help would be much appreciated. As you will gather i am a bit in the dark on these matters, but i have to say that with all the help  i have received from Forum members i am learning (slowly)

I'm afraid you cannot,  as the pumps may draw to much current, most ribbon cabe cannot take many anps at all, so you may have to see what the draw of the pumps are first..sorry. Peter
