It also gives me the opportunity to walk to the back on my way upstairs to check for water discharge.

For shut down, I generally let the boat idle down while I do the dock lines and fenders. A quick "listen" to the engine and then I kill it.

Yes, this is the old way. The way of a person really in charge of the boat does it.

I have a 92 36. You close two breakers to energize engine control circuit, then buttons above and below are functional. No key.

I would like to be able to rig up a switch on the bridge to where I can turn the master and the stop solenoid without having to go down to the salon. I’m not sure why the boat has a start and stop switch on the bridge without a master switchand stop Solenoid switch. If Anybody has any information I would love to hear from you.
I have an 84 GB 36 Classic with exactly the same set up, so it must be factory. Not sure why they did it that way. The short answer to your question is: Yes, you can rig duel systems below and topside. A good Marine Electrician can wire that for you. Might require some coordination with a good diesel mech, I don't know. I've just left it as is and dealt with it since 95% of the time, I'm already in the saloon and or need to go into the engine room for something anyway.

Hello. Different topic but my 84 GB 36 classic is Hull 712, made in Singapore. I assume yours was as well.

That's exactly my routine and for exactly the same reasons. I made the mistake of not doing that one time and the fuel return line on my generator ruptured and filled the bilge with 90 gals of diesel before I figured it out and got it stopped. Let me tell you how much fun it is to get 90 gals of diesel out of your bilge and disposed of properly.
