    Thanks Tony,

    Been rigging my own boats for 30+ years. Using the wrong crimpers and not using liquid tape. I always thought there must be better crimpers. Thanks for the tip on twisting the wires and leaving them long.

    Thanks Tony.
    That's why us old guys hire you young guys to do the work.
    My only job is to pop a top and write the check when you finish!

    That was actually a good video...and I like the long wires too, mainly because if a pump goes out offshore, like a livewell pump during a tournament....its imperative to change it out, on the water.

    And upside down like that on a bouncy ocean wouldn't be too fun...:puke

    But....with the long leads, and connections high and convenient to the opening, you are working through....you can pull everything out and just sit there on the deck and make the connections, and change out a pump quickly, safely and still get to keep your Fruit Loops down :grin

    Good stuff.
