The problems with my 26X continue. After getting the mast up and the boom attached, I've found the electrics didn't work on the mast nav lights, steaming light, etc. Then I found the instruments had stopped working and the engine console instruments were also dead. This lead me to try and trace the wiring back to search for a breakage, blown fuse, etc., which required that I remove the GRP front under the cooker. What I saw made me physically sick (see photos) ...
I have two batteries, one in the starboard locker next to the cool box, one strapped to the inside of the port locker by the cooker. The port locker battery appears to be reserved for the engine harness, but connected by household copper wire (gaaah...) to the second battery. I have two instruments on the cockpit bulkhead (depth/speed & wind strength and direction), and a fixed VHF radio, plus the usual bow & stern lights and interior lights.
What I need is a wiring diagram for the 26X that includes 2 batteries and the usual instrumentation; does anyone have one of these, even a hand-drawn one would do? I have been in touch with Anneke who used a wiring kit from Merlin Marine Equipment, but it's very hard getting hold of the one person at Merlin who can discuss my requirements.
I am confident I could re-wire the boat given some diagrams, but at the moment it all looks like a mountain to climb!
