As evidenced by my recent reluctance to adjust the valve clearances on our diesel engine, I am not very knowledgeable, or super confident, when it comes to mechanical repairs. I am much less reluctant to dive into electrical work though, especially basic wiring and troubleshooting.
Yesterday, while killing a few hours before the dinghy concert that we planned to go to, I began dissecting our nav station with the intent of figuring out, and hopefully cleaning up, the bird’s nest of wires that I knew was hidden behind the panels. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words…
First panel removed. Yes, this is going to take some work.
These are all wires that I removed which were not connected to anything!
Still a lot of work to do. Several unconnected wires remain. Where they go, I do not yet know.
After the work, we attended Grenada’s 27th dinghy concert. Always a fun time.
Especially when shared with friends.
