Wired behind the scenes: Part 16 is a really interesting video where Ship Shape TV takes you to a boat wiring factory and shows you how they organize and assemble boat wiring harnesses – and specifically for the TACO Marine Project boat. We’ve included a few wiring tips as well as show you how to properly run wire throughout your boat.
