Weird Wiring Colors
<p>If you buy a used boat, someday you’re sure to discover something that the prior owner did that leaves you scratching your head.</p> <p>For Carolyn Shearlock, it was wiring colors. It seems that if a piece of wire was needed, one was simply grabbed without regard to whether it was the same color as what it was spliced into.</p> <p>She and her husband didn’t want to get into the time and expense of re-wiring. Here she explains how they made it easier to trace wires and know what was what.</p> <p><strong>Sponsor:</strong> <a href= "https://www.fastseas.com/galley2018">Fastseas.com</a></p> <p>Coupon Code: GALLEY2018</p> <p>Music: “Slow Down” by <a href= "https://www.reverbnation.com/intrepidsouls">Yvette Craig</a></p>
