I printed that the first time you posted it. Didn't help me when I first started working on the boat because I hadn't seen it here, but it may in the future. Sometimes a diagram saves hours of hunt and peck. I am usually carefully with wiring. Old tricks like making labels, writing down color and location, using a voltmeter,etc,etc,etc. This boat I bought last March had the ignition switch replaced and the guy that did it put the lights to the solenoid screw. Talking about messing with my head. Every time I hit the starter lights would blink in strange places if the switches were on but not work with the ignition on only. Lights dimming when you hit the starter is not new but not working after you let off of the starter is to me. I actually had to sit there for awhile and think that one out before figuring out where to start looking at first.
