Maybe you could hang a couple of those anti static strips of your transom like the ones that were all the rage on cars in the early 90's

I don't think you can get static from a small boat when it's in the water. I believe I'm right on this one. What gear have you on the boat and how is it rigged. Ie underfloor trunking. A frame etc

Hi again. Single tube "a" frame bolted to transom (doesn't quite touch the deck) jockey seat /console with s/s tube backrest, remote controls on side of console (with tilt n trim on) this has a plug connector outside of the console (going to make better job of sealing this plug) all cables are then inside console/jockey seat, down through deck and come through deck in back corner then into engine, have managed to pull all cables back to inspect, all in good condition. console has speedo, rev counter, trim guage (not working), fish finder.

Thanks

I would start with the easiest first. Check all wiring on engine. Clean and spray with water repellant
Check wiring inside nave lights should be two wires on each light unless they are piggy backed then there will be two in the last light and two in two out inn the other two
Check where the wiring comes out the a frame tube may be sharp
Last thing is to look inside the controller. Loads of wires to chaff in there
That will keep you busy for a while. Don't think because it's working it's ok

Had a similar problem on a 150 Opti - was even getting a belt off the water from the tell tale! Try checking your HT leads to spark plugs - especially where they cross over other leads or hoses or parts of the engine. Found mine had melted insulation exposing HT cabling, but hard to spot.

Good luck!

Mike

Does it happen only with the engine running/ignition on? If not, then it's the accessory circuits. Pull the fuses from all the circuits & replace them one at a time until the shocks start. You might need a guinea pig to test for shocks, a small child should suffice(they are more sensitive), tell 'em it's a new game. Once you've identified engine, circuit etc, it narrows down your search area. Also check your battery connections, especially the -ve. If you have 2 batteries the -ves should be connected together with a non-switched heavy link.
