Need a little help from you guys, new to me 1997 Florida built egret 16'7. Can you guys tell me what the original switch panel switches are for, I have figured out the majority but cant figure out a few. Picture attached. The two next to the anchor light I have not figured out and the last one, eventually will have new panel made cause this baby deserves it. Thank you all in advance.

    Let me start by saying this is what I've seen on some Florida Boats. May not be the same as yours.

    #1 Nav/Anc
    #2 Cockpit (Console) Light
    #3 Livewell light.
    #4 Bilge
    #5 Livewell Pump #1
    #6 Livewell Pump #2
    #7 Acc 1
    #8 Acc 2

    There' a Facebook Group you may want to look up and see what they think.

    thank you, pretty accurate to what I have, have not paid attention to the livewell lights, #7 on mine is for the freshwater washdown wish my Egret has, I am sure #8 is an acc switch. thanks again

    Congrats on the ride!
    From the photo it appears your drip tray is missing the lip. Try calling the factory and ask them you sell you a drip tray and a switch panel. They may not sell you a switch panel without a harness or switches. 

    Good luck... Pete

    A few years ago I had an issue with a rat that ate some of my wires and ended up with a dead short. I went back to Frank and ordered an updated wiring harness, drip plate and switch panel. Worked liek a charm. My boat is a 1997. Easiest way I found to fix everything at one time. All the wiring by the way is marked what it's for every foot
