Engine Room Lighting

After struggling with flashlights in a very cold engine room for two months, I’ve upgraded some of the engine room lighting.

When I got the boat, there was a fore and aft light in the engine room.  The aft was broken, but the forward working briefly.  These were original (I think) and I decided to move up to LED lights.  I wired two new LED to port and starboard on the forward side of the engine.  During wiring, I found the wiring was tied to the “horn” circuit and not the engine room light.  This is just the beginning of a wiring adventure based on the number of “upgrades” done by the previous owners.

I will be fixing the aft light with parts from the removed forward light at a future date.

Here are some before and after shots of the engine room.

    Very interesting to follow the refit of your Trader. It’s a lot of work but you will have a nice boat when finished.
