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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
