Electric Rigging For An Old Crestliner



My son in Indiana has an old 14' Crestliner Admiral from the 50's with the covered front section that he's rebuilding and repainting. He'll have one of the old maroon Johnsons on it, so it will look like it's right out of an 1956 magazine ad.

He wants to stow the battery in the front and run a single cable back to a terminal block of some kind from which power can be distributed to things like Nav lights, trolling motor, etc. From the terminal block, he'd want to fuse each line (fuse block?), then go to a switch panel before going to the lights, etc.

Has anyone got any suggestions or guidance regarding setting this kind of thing up?

I think my biggest two questions are:
1- Is he headed in the right direction with this kind of plan?
2- What kind of box should he use to run the wires into and out of, hold the fuses, and hold the switch panel? (Remember, it's an old fishing boat with bench seats.)

If you can travel 30 miles south, I have tons of wiring stuff, icluding complete wiring harnesses, fuse blocks, etc.
Not original for your boat, and not custom made for it, but easily adaptable, and much cheaper than buy wires alone.
