Hello to all,

I will be rewiring a mid 70's Mako 22, which is in need...

Defiantly the spaghetti splices everywhere look going on under the console with everything just hanging. Two batteries located in the aft with a battery selector switch located there as well. Under the console you have all the wires going to an old bus bar and then off to the switch panel.

Have done a search and most of the wiring diagrams I have found are for twins with 3 batteries.

Was wondering if anyone could provide me with a wiring diagram for a single 225 and two batteries.

Planning on relocating both batteries under the console that I am presently remodeling. 2 batteries to a BEP cluster then unsure, but would like to use Blue Seas components, simple and clean. Would like to leave some room for future add-ons such as Lowrance HDS system and possibly trim tabs down the line.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Im rewiring a '75 Mako 22 as well and I got most of mine from this one I found on here.
I put all the switches and buss bars on a starboard panel and attached it to the inside of the console.

Thank you very much. Could someone please explain to me what different types of protection distribution are options. Such as what will a bus bar do for me that a fuse box wont etc.
