After a week off fishing the white Marlin open got home today and finished the non skid. Some spots to touch up but going to start rigging soon.

Just need a good Mercury 2 stroke wiring diagram. She's a 2001 125hp elpto I'm sure I'll be able to find one online

Non skid looks good, what kind did you use? How do you like it?

Kiwi grip.

Wish the white was whiter but I still like it. Too much bright white would be more glare in sure.

Should have primed floor first ended up with some bleed through. But it's ok lay it on thick lol

Its definitely not white like the hull sides. It matches the console though.

If this is the first build (rebuild), you've done an excellent job. Looks great

Poured rain all day so I didn't want to mess with paint but:


Today was able to mount/install
Nav lights
Flush beverage holders
Garmin gps antenna
6 rod holders

Sanded down and cleaned my "coffin box". Ready for filling holes and fairing


Tomorrow morning will be taping off for cap non skid application, mounting leaning post,caulking console, gluing merranti strips inside console for wiring cleanliness,

Well today was rigging day. What I thought is just hooking up some wires and connecting some other odds and ends was not even close to accurate!!!


Motor rigging completely ran, power/harness/ connected, new cables hooked up, rigging tube Y flange all fit together, finished up fuel lines and ball. Hooked up hydraulic steering lines, laid out battery wiring set up, the garmin 4210 and gsd22 and all of its networking and wiring. And that was about it for today.


Glued some 1/2" merranti x 2" strips inside the console for wiring organization and mounting zip ties, with the hope it would kick by the time by brother got here but wasn't the case.


Anywho,

Yesterday was a good day. For the first time since March, my motor turned to the touch of a key, it trimmed up and down with my remote trim switch, and steered left and right with the ease of hydraulic steering.

I am drawing a blank on my RPM gauge though from the instructions I have been able to see there is an ignition switch post, ground post, and signal post.

The online color coded wiring for Mercury says that my grey wire bundled in my wiring harness goes to rpm. Which post would that go to and then where would the other wire be coming from for the other post ?

You have a black (negative), purple (positive) and a grey (tachometer) right?

There is a purple wire on my engine harness that I plugged into the purple wire on the new plug and play Mercury ignition ? do I need to tap into that and make a wire to the rpm gauge?

I'm not real sure, but I wouldn't do that yet. I think there was one coming back off the ignition over to the gauges. Then it just bunny hopped from one gauge to the next to power each gauge. I'll look at my console this afternoon.
