Bunch of show offs...if you didnt do the work, you shouldn't be allowed to post the results. Here is mine when I bought it. I think the guy was Italian, because he left it looking like a bowl of spaghetti....




Here is after I got into it for a couple of days. It looks even better today.

Here is a beauty.


I got it from horrible to managable. Not art work at all but functional.


Electronics box. Note the sweet ass Walmart Road Gear tape deck. I paid $30 for it brand new 10 or 11 years ago. It is not even a "marine" radio. I was short on money and figured when it crapped out I would buy something better. It still works.

I Have a question about MSCONTENDER'S Third picture from the top. Is that not the

primer bulb in the top left hand corner of the picture? I thought that they didn't

work that way?? Everyone on here says I must use an OEM bulb and have it placed

vertical for it to work. Now I see one of the premier boat builders with one installed

horizontally. So is that how Yellowfin put the bulb? Simply trying to sort through a

few things on my boat. Thanks chris

Not boat wiring but hey had to share..

I work for a telecom company in the day and we lease some space in the co to a ip company which we will leave unnamed.

I think over half of the cables in there aren't connected to anything because they don't know where they go they just run a new cable if something happens and weave them through the rest for support.

Some nice work here! So, what are the tricks to getting the wiring so clean - is it in the planning, doing the terminals 1st or last, etc??

I'll be doing some re-wiring this spring (adding a battery, installing bep 3 bank cluster switch, general clean-up, etc) and looking for tips - thanks.

It's the planning and the execution. And knowing what you're doing.

He didn't say that. You can't tell what was factory and what I added. I guess you can tell on the GSD22 but that's the only realistic place I could put it.

Ron is absolutely dead on on that one. Terminations come last.

What I try to do is to determine the space that you have to work with, determine what systems are common, and what systems are stand alone, and then work from those determinations to complete small projects one at a time, it gives the boat owner a sense of accomplishment, say, when one aspect of the project is completed. That gives him the encouragement to tackle the next phase, as often this type of wiring is done in very confined spaces, and the comfort level is not the best...

BTW, I think the Doc is going to have to rethink group 27 battery boxes inside the console of the Talon...


Hard against everything...
