    Is it ok to run the wire harness down the side of the block to the outboard side of the stringer under the floor and up the transum will the wire get wet and cause a problem

    Nope not mine, and please don't look at mine. There are better ways to route the wires than what I did. Squirtcha? did a really clean wiring job on his boat, might check out his thread, I think Busby started the thread.

    But there are a few wiring threads on here somewhere, with some great pictures and some really good info.

    Good luck.

    Here's Squirtcha?'s thread.
    Sounds like a smoking deal

    Fwiw having a custom harness made it way too easy , mind you mines not close to being 1/2 as clean as Squirtcha's, I just called Tom (jbp) gave him some measures. Everything is color coded correct and fit like a glove. I'd like to know where to get a nice mounting bracket for a terminal block, I think I'm ready to retire the piece of cut off sheetrocking T square I used.lol

    Wire being wet by water in itself won't cause the wire any harm, but fuels and oils will harm a wires insulation even if it's oil reisistant. With that being said, I'd run the wire up the side of the gunnel before I ran it under the floor. IMO

    Don't hate the sheetrocking T square, LMAO.

    I fiberglassed pvc pipe up the right side deck[make sure u miss gas filler neck] and a short pvc pipe on the transom to hold all wires. Way better than having them loop along the gunnel where you can see them. Pat
