Boat Re-wiring Q's

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering what gage wire and how many lines to run, I'm going from the back of the boat where the battery will be to the front it'a an 18' boat and I will be the running the wires under the floor.

I want to be able to run a trolling motor, bow light, spotlight, livewell, electric anchor, flasher, plus my gas tank will be up front so a fuel gage sensor also.

Can I run one heavy gage and slice in up front or should I run seperate wires?

I was thinking of running the wires through a PVC pipe up to the front.....

Thanks Pier....

If you want for $ 25.00 I can sell you harnesses with all the wires for almost anything including speakers.

They are from boat manufacturers, it's marine grade, correct gauge, and standard color codes.

I'd go with the harness and thats a heck of a price.

Your going to have your trolling motor separate from everything else.

One set or wires feed your breakers and switches. From there each accessory will have it own wiring from the switch.

Val, I might be interested in purchasing a wire harness from you, I have some questions. Could you send me an email, briantorbert @ hotmail (Contact Us Please).

I would be looking at the wiring for aerator/livewell. Thanks, Brian.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
