Re: Bilge pump wiring

The bilge pump is shown in the 12v DC wiring diagram in section 10.6 of the PSC 34 owners manual. I wonder why they put it in one manual but not in another.

Re: My boat was boarded (and messed with) at anchor!

I don't know. I've never played with one of those. My Nikon ProStaff 550 laser rangefinder reads to the yard or meter on a digital scale. It was about $150. My wife got a deal on it because it...

Re: voltage regulator on a yanmar 3gm35F

There is a wiring diagram in the PSC 34 Owner's Manual, section 10.6. That said, the only way you will know your boat's actual wiring is to trace it out. In my case it appeared that the original...
