Nah, we just think you're an illiterate, ignorant and obnoxious A$$.

Unfortunately, I'd have to agree with you about waterproof junction boxes being a good thing, but they can also cause problems, if they are not properly sealed.

CruisingDad-

You need to use the sugar-free gum, so as not to attract rats and other vermin to your electrical system, if you're using the ABC electrical standards. Bubblicious is only recommended for above waterline connections, BubbleYum is recommended for below the waterline and in the bilge connections. BTW, ABYC Code says that Red wires are DC positive leads.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
