  • Replacing Battery Cables

    So, I need to replace my battery cables for both motors. I'm talking about the cables that go from the batteries to motors. They are about 8 feet long and I'm guessing 4ga wire. Where is a good place to have these made up? Frigid North or is there a better place online?

    Never been there but Polar Wire has made some stuff for some friends and done nice work. Take the old ones to them and they can make new ones.

        Thanks for the info guys. Prices look decent too compared to an online site I found. Guess I'll tie some 550 cord to mine and pull them out so they can duplicate them.

          I agree with the others, go see Justin at Polar Wire. He has done electrical work on my boat and does great work.

                It's all done. Polar Wire was great to work with. They had everything I needed at a really good price. New Blue Seas battery switch, two new buss bars, two new main battery terminals and all new 4 ga main wiring. It took me a lot longer than expected to get it all wired back up, but I took my time and cut all the existing accessory wires and crimped and soldered new ends. Heat shrinked everything and ran it all to the two new bus bars. Finished it off with new labels on all the hot wires so I don't have to chase fuses anymore. I even wired in a third battery for those long trips on the sound.

                  Congrats Rob - what did you use for labels on your wiring? I'm almost finished with my last electrical project of replacing the original Hewes dash panel with a new prewired, precut panel with contura switches. I'll post a pic in the next couple of days.

                    The wife brought home a regular office label maker from work. It prints out little half inch stickers. I'll see after a while how they hold up. I'm looking forward to seeing how your new dash panel turns out.

                      Here are a couple of pics of my dash panel:
