Default Houston area boat rewire

I am in the Houston area and I am looking for recommendations for a company or individual to do a complete rewire on my 2001 22’ Pathfinder. And before you ask, yes I have used the search function but couldn't find what I was specifically looking for.
My boat is all original and the wiring is getting long in the tooth and I honestly just dont like the jumbled mess under my consul as well as the faded rocker switches and control panel. I am looking for quality work and am willing to pay for quality over just getting the job done. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

rare- but I'm with popeyeiii on this one. almost done rewiring my recent acquisition.
There's no better way to become intimate with your boat, than to start labeling, cutting, stripping, crimping, heating, pulling, re-connecting and labeling your own boat.
I wouldn't do it on a yacht, but 2 to 3 batteries, a couple MFDs, a bilge or two, baitwell or two, some Nav lights and dash buttons...yeah, if you have the time, save yourself a thousand bucks and build some confidence on your rig.
I was intimidated AF on my 1st one, but a couple U/W lights here, a secondary bilge there, adding some dash accessories...next thing you know, buddies are asking you to show them how to do it.

Thanks KT. Under my console is a mess and it is driving me crazy. I really want to go from using fuses to having a bus bar and breakers.

I wouldn't mind trying to dive into doing the rewire myself but between my two girls and their sports activities during the week and weekend I don't have a free weekend until April. I really want to have it done before then so I can at least maybe sneak off from work during the week.

Let me ask a dumb question. Can i rewire just under my console, change out rocker switches and dash panels and go to a breaker system from a fuse system without rewiring the entire boat? I also have a couple lights out and my radio isnt/hasnt worked on the boat since i purchased it 2 years ago. Seems there is a short or lose wire somewhere but i cant find it in that jumbled mess.

Forgive me if this is a really dumb question but I have never messed with the wiring system in my boat and electricity and me don't get a long. Lol

No dumb questions in my world...
Yes, you can check/repair/rewire any specific circuit. Changing out rocker witches isn't a rewire.Changing out dash panel (from a wiring standpoint) is simple.
Multi-meter is your friend. turn on switch, start at fuse box (I mean, hopefully fuses have been checked) and check wire to light, etc..
Literally start at your fuse box and chase one wire at a time in both directions. sometimes, it takes a while, sometimes it smacks you in the face right out the gate.
And totally understand...got 10yr & 12 yr here..boat barn time for me is usually my wind-town time after kiddos are off to bed.

someone with no knowledge of wiring/electricity should not take on this type of project.
hire it done
it will be easier on the guy that has to finish it if you do not rip it apart

That's what I call starting with a clean slate, and might save him some money.

Here is my rewire thread.

Shawn,
Very impressive work. I know my little 22’ pathfinder isn't like any of those boats in your pics but I will give you a call as I have several other upgrades I would like to do.

Had mine rewired while i was gone during christmas and the piece of mind that it was done right is priceless.
Moved gps to dash, new switches, added another 800 bilge pump and not ashamed to open console door
any longer when clients are on board. It is some of the best boating money i have ever spent.
