Ah!...That makes sense.

Brad (bene505),
In an other forum you mentioned that you had rusty keel bolts. You were going to take one out to see if water was seeping in . How did you make out? I have seepage from 2 bolts only when the boat is rocking in the strong winds that we have had lately in the slip.
Thanks Bill

Did you ever figure out what the mystery button is? I was staring at your instrument panel picture and wondered which control you use to stop the engine - Since there doesn't seem to be a pull handle to shut off fuel, could it be that this button performs this function? Some models came with this set up - mine is equipped with the 'stop' button but the previous owner (assumption ) added a pull shut off wire. The electrical wires you traced don't support this but who knows? On your follow up posting, the small (amber?) light seems like the courtesy light on Layla, my Beneteau. Also, on mine, 'salon' switch is just that; turns on/off the main cabin lights...
