  • Motor Test without Boat Wiring

    I have to show my boat to prospective buyers and the boat currently is without wiring. I have the battery cables on the motor still, but all other wiring components and wiring has been stripped. Is there a way to safely (for the motor) rig the motor to a battery without rewiring the boat?

    Any suggestions or examples would be great.

    You mentioned without wiring. You still have the motor harness to helm right? IS the binnacle intact? The reason I ask is for neutral safety switch interlock. Also is there a kill switch? If both have been demoed you'll need to jumper these safety interlocks. The neutral safety circuit should be red/ylw stripped wire to ignition switch and the kill switch might be ylw/blk stripped wire. Hope this helps.
