1977 Skipjack 24' Runabout - Sportfish IV: 1977 24' Skipjack. This is just the wiring setup for the Lowrance LC X-17 Fish Finder. As per the manufacturer's recommendation the power source is directly from the (Port) Battery. The rest of the boat's wiring is on the starboard side. This is to eliminate electrical interference that could affect the display on the screen.  Because it is a direct connection they recommend a cutoff switch. I mounted a simple 2 position toggle switch through a piece of aluminum flat bar. There's also an inline 3-amp fuse between the switch and the terminal block. I also put marine, adhesive sealant around the mounting screw holes behind the terminal block so that the screws will never work loose and I'm now also putting a heat-shrink cover behind all of the connectors on all of my wires... This stuff is really simple to do and requires few tools, it just takes a plan, care and some time... Do it once, do it right...   -SportfishWorld © Copyright 2003 All rights reserved
