Thanks SD for the great and lengthy reply.

As for the switch, are you talking about the big rotary battery switch? Also, can you post a photo of the plexiglass control panel, since that could describe a lot of different things.
Yes, the big rotary battery switch. I will try to post a picture up of the plexiglass panel as soon as possible (if it is possible it will be done today)

Are these switches or circuit breakers??
It is a fuse panel, sorry I should have clearified myself.

No, the wire I am using is standard outdoor wire, I have asked ferinds about marine wire and they have never heard of such a thing. Where would I go about finding some? It is stranded though.

If you don't have two batteries aboard, it might be wise to get a Blue Sea Dual Circuit Plus Battery Switch with ACR and a second battery to use as a dedicated starting bank
Well I only have one battery now and I dont need a starting battery because my outboard is pullstart only. But another would be smart, but I am intinding on selling my boat in hopefully a week because I will get purchasing and Hunter 260 as soon as a house sales which should be withing 2 weeks.
