working for a living is really getting old. Its been 4 days since I have even been able to just look at my boat let alone work on it.

John

Aren't you glad that you don't have the deck on yet! You could be stuck in the dark to add to the fun.

If some one needs a wiring diagram let me know I send you mine.

Wiring diagram? Yes I started out with one but that got changed so now I have used parts of several including the one in the Glen L book, one on this forum, one I have created and one from the Coast Guard. Hopefully it wont melt when I hook up the battery. No matter how much wire you order its not enough and you have to order more. If the deck were on I would have hired someone to wire it. There is just no way this old body can climb under things anymore. I leave for a flight school conference monday and have another one next month. I need a clone.

Looking at the picture of your water pick-up....does the "grate" or open part of the pick-up face towards the front of the boat or towards the rear? I'm about ready to install mine.
