come confess your boat sins to me my son...
I will start.
I got my boat some time after college, after going on a buying spree that included a truck, a vette, and a TV, my uncle said he was selling his boat. I couldn't resist.
I didn't have a lot of money at the time, so I built it up, little by little. We started with a 454, and after a while I put some turbos on it. When it came to wiring though...oh man was I a hack.
Wire not long enough? Grab that piece of wire sitting in the driveway and butt connect it. Still not long enough? grab another! I found my oil pressure sending unit wire that had 3 colors!
One day, in a rush, I messed up my battery install. I had the neg to pos on one battery and hooked up correctly on the other. When I flipped the dual switch...BZZZZZTTTTT!
I caught it quickly, thank goodness! But 2 of my little wires were fried. So what did I do? created new insulation...with electric tape.
So now, I am trying to redo some of this stuff the right way, but man...part of me is laughing at me...part of me is just disgusted
