Our Saturday project turn into “Oh dear God Bubba....” 😳🙄

First up. Speaker wire 2 issues here. 1) Use of it is a NO NO in powered applications. The wire is too small and will burn on any load over about 1 amp or so. 2) There is no connector on the end. It was merely stripped and wrapped around the battery post. We are fixing this. Its a major safety hazard!

Second: If you look at the big red battery switch you will see a mix of red, black, and black cables with red tape coming out of it.... This is both a safety issue, and an insurance issue! Had you ever had a fire/meltdown for any reason? The insurance investigation “could have” denied coverage on the claim as the wiring doesn’t meet minimum ABYC Electrical Code. We are fixing this as well.

Third: this is all the cabling we tore out and are replacing per the notes above. But notice the green wire? Its called a bridge jumper. It connects the battery ground posts together (which is perfectly fine except....) notice how SMALL it is? It is severely undersized and would not handle the load to start your engine without melting down and catching fire should you have tried to start it only on Number 1 battery. This cable should be the same size as the red positive cable and should be black to be safe. We are fixing this as well. You will actually notice it has already begun melting down!

Finally: (So far) and this wins the internet this week (sarcasm)
Batteries are to be secured in a manner that they cannot move. If you hit wakes or rock and roll and the battery shifts for any reason it could come in contact with something that shorts the terminals and causes sparks, fires, and or an explosion. (Yes seriously) Your added battery was “secured” with a strap running around it and lashed to the waste hose that held to the hull with zipties... It was then tied off with electrical tape...
We are fixing this by installing a new battery tray that is hard mounted to the floor and will secure it properly.

Dont know who’s been servicing this boat and dont want to..... It will be right when we are done tho!

Every old boat I have owned had such wiring, it sure is nice when it is squared away correctly.

When it rains all day and a client says his job is in his shop? So today we are starting the rebuild a Boston Whaler thats been repainted and repowered. Putting switches in that wood required skill and a dremel with a depth guage! Talk about nervous?!? ...

Just a PSA. If you text/call or email after about 6pm, ill return it in the morning. Generally in bed and asleep by about 830 each night. Yeah Im old! But I wake uo and start returning emails and do office work around 5am and respond to texts after 730-8!
Have a great day!

When you walk away from your boat in November and dont come check on it periodically? You find the charger unplugged, batteries dead, and a boat just about sunk. This is the starter....
check your boats people!!!

Marina fires are no joke! Gasoline, Diesel, Propane and lots of fiberglass make for a fast spreading and extremely dangerous event...
