If you will notice it is all heat shrink connectors, they are all I use. And as I will be using both sides of the terminal blocks for connections, half of them have to be down unless you mount them vertically.

And all of these connections are inside the main helm inside the wheelhouse , if it gets wet inside there, you have worse issues than a corroded wire.

Even in wet areas, with the wire I use and the connectors I use, I have never had an issue, and I got boats from the 80's I wired with their original wiring intact and still good.

And that was before heat shrink.

Flying bridge and hardtop

Today we lifted the bridge in the rafters and moved the hardtop blank onto the jig to glass the top of it.

This week

Helm wiring, tub, sanding outside I have all the wiring in the helm I can do until we put the top on it.

Forest is working on the tub and Nat was sanding outside, getting things ready for primer.

Forest and I installed the wires for lighting in the hardtop.

I hope the cold is nearly over because it is killing our work with epoxy.

Next week I am back in the master cabin finishing up some wiring, and then the home stretch, the machinery room under the steps and the starboard engineroom.

Water catch

The hardtop on the flying bridge will double as a water catch.
It will have a lip around the edge and 2 drains in the back that will be able to have an adapter screwed in it for a hose to go each water tank.

As it is nearly 16' square and crowned , it should be effective as a water catch.

No need to waste free water.

Re: Construction Thread for Custom 45' Cruising Powercat

Sorry no pictures last week, the weather was awful and I only worked a day and a half.
We are having a good week this week, plumbing, wiring, and the hard top.

I will have pictures for you Friday.

Re: Construction Thread for Custom 45' Cruising Powercat

No comment on all the pictures I posted last night. I feel like I have let you all down.
