Took advantage of some unseasonably cool weather we've had the past two weekends to clean up and update the little Resorter's electrical system.. It got a fresh set of switches for all the main boat circuits along with a new 12 gang fuse block with integral ground bus..
Our cool weather made it bearable to lay under the dash for several hours cleaning up the rat's nest of wiring behind the instrument panel..

The new fuse panel will make adding extra electronic devices much easier, as I now have a few extra slots for adding a stereo, courtesy lights under the gunwales, and an extra bilge pump..

Also got all the harnesses that run to the rear of the boat re-secured under the gunwales and under the rear deck..
Pulled the glovebox liner out, added some reinforcements and an extra support under the dash so I could mount a marine stereo with iPod dock in it's back panel.. I didn't want to hack up the dash for a modern stereo that would look out of place with all the original instruments..

Then this afternoon I broke out the buffer and the Meguiar's and buffed, polished and waxed the hull.. Then it was time to sit up in the boat with a cocktail and a cigar to watch a beautiful sunset.. Next weekend the decks will get a buff, polish, and wax..

Got my materials list together and will be rounding up all the stuff this week so I can get started on replacing the floors along with rebuilding some of the interior furniture..
