There is a post about colors for marine wiring some where, I have seen it. Don't worry too much about adhering to the color chart I didn't and the "boat police" haven't arrested me yet. If you have a motor on this boat with factory wiring save it ,label it , dont loose it. As far as the rest of the boat, get a pair of wire cutters and start over. Boaters world has online pictures of fuse blocks , switches , power posts, etc. Grab a cup of coffee climb into the boat and plan how many circuits you need. Measure the length from dash to battery add a foot or so , better yet get a piece of string a run it from here to there then measure the string. I ran a 10ga. + & - from the battery to a power terminal under the dash then branched off from that. Dont get in a hurry, plan what you are going to do. Good luck Jerry
