It all depends on the wire size? I just wired the buggy and it was $120 for the wire and that's half of what a jet boat takes.

I like the Mercruiser style, and have used them on all 9 of our project boats, they can be bought pretty inexpensively, have plenty of wires, and the quick connect makes engine removal simple.

I buy used blown up Merc, engines and steal the harnesses off them, its cheap, they have circuit breakers for the main and they come out pretty clean. You can purchase the dash side of the harness for like thirty-five bucks.

But I am a cheap bastard ::)

I like running my own wires when I can find the right colors.  I finally did on eBay.  Use the standard marine wiring color guide and you're all set and anyone can figure out what you've done.

#14 item number:  190234841505

#16 item number:  200236898925

I don't know where you are buying #10 wire but you can get that from Lowe's or Home Depot, stranded for about $ .50 a foot or less.  So both the black and white can be had (20 feet x 2) for about $20.00.  You can twist it or you can run it through convoluted tubing that I got from SummitRacing.com.  As for connectors, you can find them on eBay as well, but it's just as easy to go to your local big box store and buy them or automotive parts store.

Do all the wire have to 10gage ?

or just the power and ground wires......

I checked our local hardware store, and 14 gage is .19 cents a foot but if i need 10 gage that a little more

I only used #10 for the power and the ground to the dash, also the starting circuit.  I think you could use #16 for everything else.  The Hardin Marine harness looks to be like #18 or smaller.  Nothing is really drawing enough current except when starting, to warrant real heavy wiring.

Thats what i thought, thanks.........

I went out and measured the boat the 20' wire harness is about 5' too long......I dont know if it will come with all connectors attached or if it will let you trim to fit ??? If not..... I will buy my wire from the hardware store and get with it....   I really like what skip did with his set up. That plug idea is bitchen....

Where's that thread from Skip's wiring?  I'm always open to other ideas.  I don't think you'll find all the right colors in a hardware store.  Had I found the eBay site before I did mine, I would have gone with the #16 and alol the right colors for a boat wiring job.
