Here's an image of the wiring block for the navigation lights on my 1978 13' Standard:

I know the two wires coming in from the bottom are the bow light. What I was thinking about doing was putting two simple ON-OFF switches under the rear seat; remember, I don't have a console. I have the original stern light including the plug and wiring that goes to the wiring block.

What screws does the positive and negative from the batter go to? How do I break the connection for the switch to the bow light? What screws do I connect the stern light to?

The two terminals of the terminal block are connected to the combined sidelight lamp at the bow. The lamp does not have a polarity.

If you wish to control the sidelights and the all-round light separately, you simply wire them independently. In that case, you cannot use the terminal block as a common point.
