Rewire - Glasgow

Want to get my RIB rewired and at the same time add new plotter. Anyone know someone/company in the Glasgow/Renfrewshire general area that is reliable?

Thanks

From my experience you would be better off doing it yourself if you have basic skills, you can then do it properly without certain short cuts 'some' companies use.

You will also learn a great deal from doing it which will aid you in the future.

You can buy components online from a few places.

I've used BEE both at Troon and in Argyll. Can recommend them. They have area based engineers that will come to your craft but they also have workshops at Kip and Troon. It's worth a call to discuss. It's a family business run by father and son

Yampower in Glasgow have been good as far as I am concerned. They did a good job setting up my rib.

Boat Electrics seem to be having issues. Chap called Frank came out promised a quote, chased after a week, said they would get back to me. After another week had to chase again, they said they hoped to get the quote out next week


Best avoid

The joys.

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.
