Default Marine Wiring/Electronics Installer

I HATE wiring. That being said, I'm looking for someone in SC, preferably central SC, that will do some for me on my "new to me" boat. I want it done right, of course, no shortcuts or any other BS. I want to add/enhance the house system, replace the in-dash electronics, add NMEA 2000, and to me, it's not as straight forward as it seems (probably because I'm old and ignorant about such things). I can straight wire to the battery, but that's about it. But did I mention that I HATE wiring??

Any recommendations??

I live in Florence, SC. My father was an Electrician, spent my youth repairing TV's and pulling wire. I have installed/repaired both electronics/ mechanical systems on boats. I also can trouble shoot and clean up 12V messes. Also lots of experience with trailer lights.

Last month rewired and installed a simple 12V Buss and Blue Seas breaker/switch system on my McKee Craft. Also installed a new Lowrance GPS/Sonar system. Did a much more complicated set-up on my Dusky in 2018. When I turn on a switch ON - the system works.

When offshore even a few miles its very, very important that a boat's electrical system is working properly. Same holds true if fishing the salt marsh late in the afternoon.

Poor corrosion protection is the single biggest cause of electrical problems on a boat. I specialize in electrical systems corrosion/chaff protection.

PM me if interested in talking.
