I hate it when I post a question and get no replies.
A picture would help us understand exactly what the problem is. If its just that the wiring
is very small it should still be doable, just difficult. Is this the connection at the top of the mast
or at deck
level ? The top of the mast would add to difficulty level, no doubt. But I think its only 4 wires ?
Using a small micro-torch to solder should work
. And some good heat shrink tubing would be a must.
