    Re: electrickery help needed

    Dymo is what I use (different brand though) set it for the smallest print and just wrap around the cable once. Doesn't look as pretty as proprietary cable labels but as it's all behind a panel I can survive.

    Thanks Sam, I like the label she had that she showed me, so I'll get playing with it when she brings it home tomorrow.

    Might have to get yourself to office works and stock up on extra label cartridges - once you start,,,,

    Easiest option is a fine point marker. Can also use a label with a bit of clear heat shrink over the top so they dont come adrift.

    I was thinking originally of a clear heat shrink Scott, I;ll give my wife's machine a crack and see how they turn out.

    Apologies for the wiring all messy and all over the place, I know with your OCD that would near make you block the post .

    I had no idea when I started this, how much effort goes into setting everything out, routing the wires properly etc, I remember you told me to get a pile of those wire ties, as you will forever be cutting them to add, well that ain't half the truth ..... It is a lot easier to at least be a couple of hours on at a time, or more, up until now it's been in 1/2 hour burst here and there, which doesn't really work.. But Corona might just fix that over the next couple of months I'm picking..

    Clear heat shrink makes a lot of sense in the marine enviroment as u can see any corrosion happening on anyone joint so long as the heat shrink is uv stable

    Clear is just for the labels Gazza. Use dual wall for the actual joins which is black. Might be available in other colours - never looked.

    No one does Col unless they have had a go themselves. I did a crew boat at work about this time last year. Basically a full rewire including new engine harnesses, fabrication of a bilge monitoring system, 8 bilge pumps, remove and refit electronics, redesign house battery system as new engines were 24 volt not 12 etc - was pretty much a full time job for 2 months. A "standard" offshore trailer boat these days takes about 3 days on average. Up spec and it's a week plus of man hours.

    Re: electrickery help needed

    Scott, unlike some of the jobs I've had to do on this rebuild, which were laborious and wished I hadn't started and learn't on the run, Wiring has been the biggest challenge ( still lots to go) but I haven't regretted the choice to attempt it myself, it's a huge learning curve and made way easier with the advice and knowledge shared on here.
    Hearing the time needed from your own examples makes me feel a little better, and as mentioned, a minimum of at least a couple of hours a session helps.

    Cheers
    Col
