No need to be embarrassed. Think of the millions of people who don't have one.

That looks great! One of these days, y'all are going to embarrass me re: the condition of my boat, to the point where I either fix it up right, or quit coming to group events! :hand:

Got the rear floor figured out and mounting gas tanks and forgot bulge pump. I’ll install that this weekend.
Motor is wired for electric start. I found no continuity
Between negative ground on battery and aluminum hull. So far so good. Maiden voyage is set for labor day week. Keep you all posted!!
Thanks for all the great advise over this journey!!

My controller is not isolated and there is no continuity between my battery and the hull. If you have continuity disconnect one thing at a time until you find the problem then fix it.

I have never checked mine but it seems like you would get some continuity through the control cables unless the controller is isolated?
