Boat electrics shouldn't really need to be redone if they're installed correctly in the first place.
That means you want tinned wiring (copper will oxidise in salt water environment) in relatively short space of time. Unfortunately outboard manufacturers are still using copper wiring on things like gauges and main loom to engine. Issues such as faulty trim and tilt are common problems, auto choke not working, starter motor problems.
If it's a complete rewire, then insist on tinned wiring, quality fuse box such as Blue Sea, and all terminal ends soldered and heat shrink-wrapped. You get what you pay for.
Fingers crossed they get back to you ASAP. A couple of weeks isn't long in the boat business.
