I am going to replace the rub rail on my [1981--please use four digits for years] [Boston Whaler] 15. I will be running new wiring for the [combined SIDELIGHTS] at the same time. I have installed a three-position light switch on the console allowing me to run [All-round WHITE] or [All-round WHITE and combined SIDELIGHTS]. I wonder , has anyone has re-routed the wires from the bow to come back the starboard side and exit through the hull beside the console? I was hoping to be able to do this; then I can eliminate the terminal block at the rear port side. Comments and experience with this set up would be appreciated.

If you are going to re-install the wiring from the console to the bow for the navigation lamp, you should run as you described. It sounds like a good idea to me.

Thanks for the reply. Knowing the boat as you do I presume there isn't something I have overlooked that might be a problem. The biggest consideration was how I would fill the exit hole on the port side. Now that I have moved my stern light to the starboard it will clean up the port from any wires or terminals. Doing this work it has left me with numerous filled in screw holes...any comments on having the interior Algripped?

All of the questions you are raising are really not at all related to electrical aspects of small boats. To get advice about making repairs or modifications to your classic Boston Whaler boat, please post your article to the discussion area whose topic is REPAIRS/MODS.
