Replace Panel vs. Replace Switches
I recently replaced the anchor light. Going out to the boat this week, I checked on the light to make sure all was good. After turning on the master, then the anchor, I saw it wasn't working. So I checked on some other electrical items. Nothing working. I unscrewed the panel and noticed that the wires were coming out of the switches and the switch to the anchor light was separated inside. Now I know why the master indicator didn't work either, the wire wasn't connected (old). So after examining my options, looks like all the connections need to be redone and a few if not all the switches need to be replaced.
Should I just replace the entire panel or do switch by switch? If the panel route, where is a good place to get a replacement panel?
This is a Catalina 27' (1981). Any help would be appreciated.
