While it is certainly likely that if the boat has it's orginal wiring, upgrading may be, even probably will be, necessary, you won't really know until you have the boat. It may well be you find one that has already been upgraded.

If though, you are faced with the task of re-wiring, and intend to keep the boat for any length of time (say 5 or more years), then I would do a complete re-wire. If not all at once, at least with some plan of doing so in steps. You have to look at it as a system, not just individual components. It will only work as well as the weakest link in the system.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
