So I`m embarking on a re-wire of an entire 70`s cuddy offshore boat. I have alot of ideas for lighting, switching, radios, guages, and other electronics. This is my first big boat project even though the boat isn`t big...but it does need everything inside revamped. I could tell it was time to do something when on the first trip I turned on the anchor light and it blew 3 other fuses, and when I wanted nav lights I`d have to reach over the side and punch the `glass beside the lamp...not too reassuring!
What I would like to know from all of you is where do you shop the most online. I know most things are available here but I intend to order most as it`s far less expensive in some respects. So if you have a link or 2 or 3 let me see `em.
The one thing I`m stumped on is the instrument panel bezel...the switches I want to run are square and the design calls for a total of 14 switches. I`m good but not good enough to line up 5 rows without having a couple look out of place. Anyone know anyone that could stamp a piece of aluminum for the switch bezel??
Thanks in advance for any input.
A couple pics just `cause it`s the law of forums.
