We all know the saying “you can’t tell a good book by its cover”. I have a new one “you can’t tell if it’s a good wire connection until you remove all the electrical tape”. In my aft bilge I have a bilge pump that’s activated by either a float switch or manual switches on the main electrical panel, and a warning light to the bridge when pump is activated. A Hi-water float switch wire to an alarm bell on the bridge. Also, in the aft bilge is a pump too empty water in the fish box overboard. The pump is activated by a switch on the main electrical panel and possible a switch that was inside the fish box that is no longer there but a caped off Hot wire is. Do not ask how I found that out. Now back to the electrical tape. After removing all the tape and goo from around all the wire connections, what did I find? Just ordinary plastic wire nut screw type connectors and plain crimp butt connectors, no heat shrink tubing or connectors anywhere. I should add a picture on how not to wire a boat. As per my post title How to reconnect bilge pump wires. Here is what I was thinking: 1: Use Deutsch watertight Connectors (combination of 2 & 4 Pin) for all the wires and secure in current location. 2: Use heat shrink butt connector and tubbing for all wires and secure in current location. 3: Use heat shrink ring connectors and tubbing on all the wires and connecting them to 2 6-gang terminals that would be attached to the back of the fish box. Using option 1 or 2 I would not have to splice in extra wire for length. Using option 3 I would have to splice in extra wire to reach the back of the fish box. FYI the 2 wire cables running from the main electrical panel to the rear bilge supplying the power to the pumps and float switches are 3/8” black round 3 wire 12 awg orange/black/brown. Running all new wiring for a home run is not an option, I believe, all the wiring was done before they put the cockpit floor in when they built to boat. Any pump or float switch that may need replacing in the future could easily wired into the Deutsch connectors or the 6-gang terminals without splicing any wires. I’m open to all recommendation. I just want do it right.
