In a short afternoon at the shop, I finished up the final wiring tasks beneath the helm console, including permanent installation of the VHF radio, and secured the wire bundles as neatly as possible. I corrected a minor wiring issue with the bilge pump switch to activate the pump properly. Earlier, I’d failed to test the USB outlet pair in the accessory outlet, so now I grabbed the only thing I could quickly find with a USB power plug–my battery jump pack–and plugged it in to ensure the outlets were powered correctly.
With everything functional and now secured, I finished up work at the console by installing the original helm unit once more.
