If you are going to maintain it I think you don't have any choice but to rip it out sometimes because it is often easier in the long run, especially if it doesn't have schematics. Without schematics you become very superstitious and afraid to touch anything because if you break it you may never be able to figure out what is wrong with it, and that's not the kind of trouble you want in the middle of the ocean. Almost every electrical system on any sized cruising boat is custom to some degree and all those wires look alike without a drawing.
