I need help with the boat wiring on a 1956 Feathercraft.
The boat is 14 feet long and I want to wire it for bow lights, navigation lights, horn,
GPS, speedometer and volt/amp meter. I would also like the option of adding a
stereo and spotlight in the future.
I'm starting with a blank slate except I have already purchased the vintage style horn, lights and GPS speedometer. I'm especially concerned about keeping the retro look by using toggle switches
even though I will be running a modern motor with start/remote.
Can you point me in the right direction on this? I assume you have
adapters to fit on the leads of my lights
Nice boat!! We had a Feathercraft and a Wagemaker when I was a kid.
Since you will be using toggle switches, I would combine our
Switch Panel Rewire Kit with our
smallest Snap Together boat wiring harness.
This combination will give you all new wiring for your toggle switch, a modern Blue Seas fuse panel, and all of the accessory wiring for your components.
And yes, we do include adaptors for all of your vintage accessories.
If any of your components need to be updated, all of our EZACDC components come pre-terminated with the snap together connector.
The rewire kit will allow you to maintain that vintage look with your toggles, but give you all new, tinned copper, correct color wiring for your boat. This kit plugs directly into the snap together harness to give you a modern OEM quality install.
If you choose to not use toggles, any of our snap together
electrical switch panels will also plug directly into our harness.
If you choose to wire the toggles switches yourself, we include a 12 position adaptor with all of our snap together harnesses to accommodate this type of install.
Hope this helps,
