Anyone done complete re-wiring on 23' CC?

Thinking about completely re-wiring a 23' Parker. anyone have any idea who would do that and at what cost? The boat is 25 years old and has 25 years worth of "re-dos" none of them recent.
In addition to twin yamahas, the boat has Loran gear that needs to come out, Furuno depth finder, Garmin gps, after-market on-deck live well, am/fm and vhf, spreader light, running lights.... not much else.
twin batteries in the transom and a single battery under the console....
anyone with knowledge, let me know if there is any other information needed for some ideas.
Thanks for any help....

    I've done a 24'. Wire is $$$$.
    Boatwire.com used to be about the best prices. I would suggest using junction strips throughout if there are dry places and use 100% tinned wire and the best sealed connectors you can get.
    Get some of these jobbies for areas where you don't use junction strips to create a perfect sealed connection. Use noninsulated butt connectors with it. http://www.spliseal.com/ You can get the glue gun from harborfreight cheap and works fine with the black sticks spliseal sells or the "clearish" regular glue.
    Get one of these awesome tools (griz pointed it out) for large cables and ratcheting crimpers for all others.

    As far as making it look clean.. I'm no help there.

    BestBoatwire became genuinedealz.com. The guy is GREAT, great prices, fast service, I was very pleased with him. This goes back 3 years but I am sure he is still good.

    As stated wire is $$, but use the right stuff!
    Seal every single connection and termination that is made!

    Honestly it's not that hard if you think of it component by component, before you start and during, but still remember the big picture of it all.

    I did my 23 Robalo about 4 years ago by my self.

    We use tin wire for a few things and work and the price is sky high, might be worth paying someone to do it, they are going to get better pricing on the wire than you so hopefully that offsets some of the cost.
