Could you tell us more about your boat and its engine etc? and what exactly you are having difficulty with

Those gauges are air pressure for speed, so just a tube running back to a transom mounted pitot tube, tacho will have wires to the engine or control box depending upon inboard/outboard, and you set switches to suit number of cylinders, voltmeter is simply plus wire to the ignition switch to read battery voltage when key is on and a ground, and fuel gauge needs a tank sender to suit (code F 240-33 ohm from what I have found) and has a ground and a "live" wire.
Hopefully with a little more info we can give you some more detailed help.

By the time I have built a boat, I'll be ready to build a boat....

I also built the Malahini.
I have information and a wiring diagram on my blog. It shows the wiring size, etc.
Here is a link. ... -boat.html
I have a tach, speedo, electric and fuel. The fuel tank came with a sensor, the speedo has a pitot tube you mount on the transom. The tach connects to the engine, that can get tricky depending on the engine. And the electric is just wired in.
PM any specific questions.
