Default Entire boat rewire

Been slowly rewiring my entire boat. No misfortunes so all is good. Kind of a small spaghetti look but not bad for first time. It is all hides under the dash so it will work. Last thing is to wire fresh water pump
up to the original sink bowl. The faucet has its own On and Off switch built into the faucet, or just like a faucet at home works, no switch to turn on and off. My attempt to load a photo failed because it was a jiff' I'll
work on figuring how to change that to a jpeg.

Why do you have a fuse 4" from a fuse?

Default Was thinking of leaving factory fuse

Probably going to get cut out. Two fuses makes no sense. Just hated to cut it out as it was new in line.

Ok, let me try this, it says jpeg so should work. Here is under dash wiring. I'll look for other photos, I did a back panel where the interior of the boat stops, behind that is where I have my fuel tank and my battery's and explain what I did there. Dash is finished so got that to talk about also coming up among other things and questions I have.

my first attempt to wire entire boat, hey everything works!

You really should use heat shrink butt connectors, not the cheap ones, or at least heat shrink them. Those you used don’t last very long on a boat, and their additional cost is marginal. But glad you got everything working! Nice job

I worked as a maintenance mechanic in industry for years. I'm pretty good at wiring stuff and making it look good. I rewired my boat and ended up pretty disappointed with myself. I simply could not fit under the console and struggled for hours to get things right. I ended up with much longer wire loops than I would have wanted. As long as you don't lay under my console and look up, it's fine.

If I had realized how difficult that part was going to be, I would have cut into the console and made the top fold up to allow easy access. Maybe next time.
