Could anybody point me in the right direction on this. The boats a 68. It had been sitting uncovered for several years. While the hull seems to be in good shape, the wiring harness needs to be redone. I'm not really knowedgeable in this area but I figure if i get pointed in the right direction I'll be able to figure it out. There is not much on there: ignition, trim motor, cigarrette lighter receptacle, engine pressure gauge and another one I can't remember battery or tach and lighting (bow light not sure how that is wired and stern was a juryrigged set up not sure how I want to handle this) I'll be going handheld on the VHF and GPS but installing a Lowrance X-51 depthfinder. I also wouldn't mind putting a CD player on her but thats another can of worms. Most of this stuff is disconnected or broken on the stern end of the harness but is still connected and in good shape under the console. If anybody could refer me to a posting or website so I can make my own harness and get the right wire to the right place. thanks.

Just tried to send a wiring diagram to you, but your Yahoo address came back not deliverable.

Could you send the wiring diagram along to me as well? I am redoing a Sakonet, but the wiring should be similar I believe.

In those circumstances, I'd pull all the
wiring out of the boat, and reproduce it
it, and put it back. Use nothing that
doesn't say Ancor on it and you'll be using
quality materials. Never use anything
electical on a boat that came from the
hardware or auto parts store.
Use ABYC color codes (may be a bit hard to
