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.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
