So you are the one with the switch! Turn it on will you? None of us out here can get our damn Tilley's to fire up.

One of the comforts of redoing one's wiring (as what previously owned boat doesn't have mystery wires?), is knowing exactly what every switch does and where every wire goes.

I ripped out over 200 ft of wire (half AC, half DC) and needed less than 100 to replace it.

Sorry SlowButSteady, this procedure does not work unless accompanied by muttering and cursing.

FYI- I was doing that exact thing the other day tracing Antennae wire AND replacing scupper hose. I discovered one thing of note: The Lazarette edge is unforgiving on people who have even the slightest belly flab.

...And people! No mention at all of actresses named Meg or Jennifer?

Probably not.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
