consider wiring an extra and secreted switch in the main power feed to the engine to imobilise the engine or an extra fuse and take it away with you!

Stage one of re-wire - waterproof box with twin 6 way blade fuse boxes, two buss bars (still to be connected to battery via 100amp fuse). GPS/ DSC connection made, still awaiting connection to nav lights, power socket and bilge pump.

If paid by the hour I would be a rich man!!

Looking good.
Just remember all that hard work will be worth it, and the number of swear words is proportional to the effort put in.

Swifty, ArnGeorge,

Buoyed up with all this enthusiastic rewire malarky I'm going to have a go this coming winter on the delta, any favourite enclosure manufacturers and suppliers? Sort of know what and where for the other parts. Was thinking of putting an IP66 enclosure behind a small hatch in the console.

Sounds good. I tend to order most stuff from rapid electronics or farnell. Links below. Aquafax stuff is ok, if a bit pricey. Depends on what you want/are able to do. Maybe if you describe what you want then maybe we can point you in the right direction.

Re-wire plan;

IP66 Enclosure behind a hatch (so it is inside console)
Carling Contura series I or III switches with legends
Blade fuses fed from Bus-bars with all neutrals returned to fusebox
GPS Sonar VHF all on separate circuits
Connections made with heatshrinkable hotmelt filled crimps
Other terminations coated in liquid electrical tape or heatshrink
100 amp (or suitable size) primary positive protection fuse
Any new cabling tinned
General tidy round and secure with spiral wrap, zip ties and cobra conduit.
Circuit diagram with legend - now I'm being silly!!

Pretty much an amalgamation of all the good ideas on here, Rib International did do a rewire article but it was a while back, HMS how about a return to it?
Only probelm is how small the console is on our "classic" Delta its a right shoe horn job did think of rigging it all outside but it then prone to being damaged by cylinders etc.

Swifty - mind if i pick your brains about your wiring diagram and installing a similar set up...?

Firstly, how does the elec start/choke/trim controls on the throttle box link in to the engine wiring on the diagram?

Should it just be the positive supply that is fused or both?

Could you please clarify your junction/fuse box diagram - positive supply in and to bus bar/each +ve terminal fused and sent to device via switch???

Negative supply in and to bus bar/each -ve terminal not fused and away to device via switch???

Could/should trip switches be used instead of fuses?

Also, if the switch panel is fused and all aux's run through this, does the main junction box/busbar setup still need fusing?

Cheers

SEB

Okay, lets start at the top...
Carling rocker switches, how many? 1: GPS, 2: echo, 3: VHF, 4: bilge pump, 5: nav lights, 6: steaming light, 7: cigarette socket.

Once we know the number of switches we can work out how many fuses you need. An 8 way should do you.

Add on the bus bars and cable glands etc and we can work out the smallest box that will accomodate them.

A drum of 1.5mm cable (16amp), length of red and black heatshrink, box of cable numbers 0-9, spiral wrap, cable ties etc etc.

Thinking aloud, I think what I will do is list a kit of parts.

Back soon...
