Re: Lack of Confidence
Electrical is a tricky unpleasant process.
However I think you'll feel a lot better when you get it done. It's a simple thing, but it's incredibly discouraging to flip a switch and have nothing happen. I know from experience. Having faulty systems just lowers your confidence in your boat, increases your stress, and makes sailing that much more difficult.
3 tools I recommend having are:
1) A proper crimper
2) A butane (cordless) soldering iron/heat-shrinker
3) An automatic one stroke wire stripper
