View Full Version : Boat Electrical

10-01-2015, 12:48 PM
Hey fellas, long time no talk hope you're all well. So Ive had the privilege of using my bosses boat this summer from time to time. Its a 24ft scout cc, and its a great boat. Except almost nothing electrical works on it. No running lights, bait-well, gas gauge, music or speedometer. Luckily the important things work, bilge, tachometer, and depth finder. The guys who own it don't use it enough to care frankly, but id really like to get everything running tip top for next season as a thank you for being so generous with me using it. Is there anyone around the cape area that you guys recommend or anyone here that could help? Thanks

it is so easy to DIY, you would be crazy to pay someone $80+/hr to do it.
Unless your free time is worth way more and you have the money, I guess.

Mine was a real rats nest when I bought it, not all that difficult if you have the time. Did most of it under the shrink wrap in the winter with a heater.
Pm me if you like, u can come by, take a look, may help

When in doubt - rip it out. I am pretty fussy about wiring nowadays- when I hit a switch I want something to happen. Electrical problems make me loose my mind

Thanks gents, I'm not really experienced but I'd love to tackle it as a winter project. This gives me a little motivation for sure, Andy and guppy thank you I'll be in touch. I think they usually take it out of the water at the end of the month so I'll keep you posted

One of my best friends is mobile marine mechanic and could do it if ya don't want to go the DIY route. As someone mentioned its about what your time is worth.
