Default power cords and plugs

Where can I find either made-up power cords, or power plugs for a couple of
old marine VHF radios?

I have a Polaris Regency and Sea Ranger I need power cords for. The plugs
aren't readily available, but were standard ones for those vintages of VHF
marine radios.

marine radios.

I don't remember what the Sea Ranger used, but almost all of the Regency
Polaris models used a common, off the shelf connector made by Molex. The
type used was called "standard .093". The pins were crimp-on style, best
with the proper crimpers, but doable with care with long nose pliers and a
Leeeeetle (emphasize Leeeeetle) bit of solder. They seem to be listed in all
the popular electronic parts catalogs, on and off line. For a while, maybe
still, Radio Shack stocked some sizes of the plastic bodies and the pins.
..093..... NOT the .062.

Jameco, Mouser, Allied, Digikey, all have Molex Connectors and pins.

My Sea Ranger scanning VHF has been a really good radio.

Thanks for the info.
