In reviewing the wiring on Grand Finale in preparation to rewire the boat, I discovered that the factory laminated all the wiring between the cabin liner top and the deck. There are resin drips coming through the wiring holes where the cabin lights mount. Is this common on all Dolphins or just mine since it was the last one out the door?

Hi Mike
Fishing around in back of a liner sounds like a messy hassle. Maybe you can use a volt meter and a long piece of wire to check if the wiring is still good, or at least good in some areas. If yes, maybe don't rewire or just partially rewire as necessary?

Or maybe think about bonded or screwed grooved thin varnished wood strips strategically placed that cosmetically would look good, or at least ok and hide a wiring plan?

Marionette has a solid wood cabin and 'roof', and she has no dome light - her lights are along the edge of the cabin under the deck or on the bulkheads so rewiring and hiding it was not a big problem. If a dome light is needed and existing wiring is shot, and wood strips won't cut it, maybe a battery powered LED would suffice?

Good Luck

I am wanting to link 5 mini led light bars
together in a row, from one continous wire from the power 12v high watt led lights. But so they can be connected and disconnected from the main wire. flexible led strip lighting How can this be done in the neatest way??

I'd like to see how the Led turns out as I have something similar in mind. Where do you plan to install them?
