Rewiring the Mast
I am planning to rewire the anchor, spreader and masthead lights on my Morgan 32.
Curently the wiring configuration is as follows:
Anchor Light: 14/2 cable WT and BK wires. WT+ and BK-.
Spreader and Masthead Lights: 14/3 cable WT, GN & BK wires. WT+ fo the Masthead Light, GN+ for the Spreader Lights. BK- common for both the Masthead and Spreader Lights. Also, the black wires from each cable are tied together at the base of the mast making one ground (negaive) connection for all of the mast's lights.
I have a problem believeing th is the correct color code by today's standards.
Because there is almost 20' between the anchor light connection and the spreader/masthead lights' connections, I want to stay with a two cable senario. (The 14/5 mast wiring cable by Ancor would not be practical for this application.)
Staying within today's standards, how should I proceed?
