Electrical refit

I agree. Get Casey''s book and dyi. I rewired my 1970 Mogan 35 last year. All anchor tinned wire and Blue Seas panels. I ran all the wire in conduit and increased the gauge of wire on just about everything. Cheap insurance. About the only wires I didn''t touch were for the overhead lights. The wires run between the fiberglass headliner and the coachhouse roof. No clean way to run new. 34 years of spaghetti was removed. I was amazed. Dead ends; wires that change both color and gauge halfway through a run, etc. There is nothing particularly difficult, but you''ll get plenty sore contorting your body into some of the spaces!
