Some of the issues I found while taking the boat apart

Itís clear that my prognosis over the summer was that this boat was not suffering from one issue but a culmination of many

I've been a big Yellowfin fan, my nephew owned a 32 for five years.....but to see some of the wiring mistakes is sad.

However, when pumping out the volume of boats they do, having even the best of help can result in mistakes like those. I would venture to guess those failed crimps led to many of the electrical issues the owner was experiencing....and extremely difficult to diagnose...

Good luck on the rebuild. It's nice to drop in on these and see how the pros work at their level of expertise.

And thankfully davidknowitall has stopped dinging your thread.....

David is OK, he has far more knowledge than I do when it comes to those verados and rigging them . He graciously sent me a private message offering me any help I need with it we just both have strong opinions .

I have no doubts the issues with the czone and the electronics were caused by the culmination of issues Iíve found so far. The next step is to design and implement a better system with the knowledge weíve gained from the shortcomings of this one

Couldn't agree more with this. You Florida boys don't know how good you have sometimes. I know a Yellowfin owner in Montauk that had to fly a guy up from florida to fix his Czone. It's hard enough up here to get a decent mechanic to work on your Yamahas or Mercs - at any price! Getting this thing worked on anywhere but florida. Forget it. Give me old school switches that break a lot but any monkey can fix.

Lots of progress since I last posted. Got the console and leaning post cleaned up and painted. Been full steam ahead getting the batteries mounted and the DC distribution system back together.

in all honesty,
giant Simrad system
6 livewell pumps
9 million lights
3 5 channel amps driving 6 subs and 12 speakers
I think 4 31s will meet the requirement adequately with proper load management.

I still need to cram 4 engine batteries in there

Boat manufacturers should offer a choice on what systems you want in a boat. I will take the old school simplicity route every time. Looks like A good project, best of luck.
I'm sure they will wire a boat any way your heart desires, all you have to do is ask.

Looking great, big props to you. Was that bilge-kote for that battery area? That stuff is great and even though its a major pain in the ass taking out all screws, wires, etc. You've got a nice clean base makes for a beautiful finished product. What are you doing for audio?

I used west marine epoxy paint over the yellowed gel.
the Audio system is a fusion UD755 connected to 3 JL 5 channel amps,
6 JL 10Ēsubs
8 6Ē JL speakers
2 8Ē JL speakers
4 JL tweeters

it came on the boat, although it hasnít worked 100% ever, my next move is to get it hooked up and figured out before the engine rigging stuff gets stuffed in, plus the little Bluetooth speaker isnít cutting it anymore lol

Well itís not my boat personally but it is fished very hard, Itís also taken to the sandbar frequently as well

In defense of any judgment, not that it matters, The boat already had the stereo installed and it doesnít make much sense to go try and glass up all the holes for a quieter system

not sure why people think that the two are mutually exclusive. I see no reason that a hardcore fishing boat can't have a huge stereo. I play music all day while fishing and then blast it on the way home as I'm reveling in a full fish box and a few brewskies.
