If you are referring to my wiring job... I agree. It's sort of messy for my taste too (actually WAY messier that I had hoped). But, with cost spiraling out of control, time running out to get back to this season's boating, the current long-run wires installed when the boat was built which made them impossible to swap out, and a few other unanticipated complications, I really needed to get the system to a point where it was working. Moreover, is IS a VAST improvement over the previous setup. More complex, but I am now more comfortable that we can stay out on the hook for longer periods. I also have a must greater knowledge of the entire system from one end to the other.
Would I like it to be all laid out proper? You betcha. However, as with everything in boating, a compromise needed to be made. Perhaps someday in the future we can live closer to the boat so I can spends all the days of the week (after work) working, test fitting, adjusting, refitting, and getting projects perfect. Now, however, we are only able to get down on weekends (usually every other) and it REALLY slows the process down.
