RE: Cable Crimper

Solder or no solder aside ... FF mentioned an issue that I'm also struggling with - the starter cable.

Mine goes straight from the battery to the engine, unfused.* I "thought" it was supposed to run through the main battery switch first, but that's a long run and back with some heavy cable.* I've see drawings of both configurations.* Is it* a matter of convenience and/or preference?

I am trying to sort out the Frankenstein wiring on my boat that has been through at least 2 previous owners.
