Thanks for the feedback! I’ll definitely use the velcro method. Here’s my quick and dirty wiring diagram:

Here you go. you don't want to run any wiring without one. It also makes for a super clean looking battery, With only two larger wires going to the battery. And not a rats nest of small wires all over the place. I run a lot of switches as you can see, and this set up is perfect for me

As WetWille stated, Velcro is a great tool. I never had the box come loose.

You can see the same fuse box under the dash in this picture.

On my Vagabond II, I bought a marine type fuse box that has LED lights that illuminate should a fuse blow. I liked that idea because it'll make it a lot easier. I then glued industrial strength Velcro on the back side of it and a larger piece of the matching Velcro to the backside of the dash on the passenger's side. Then, I just stick the fuse box to the backside of the dash and take it down to look at while I'm seated if needed. Piece of cake. ;)

The glove box is a good place to mount a small fuse block.

Do not use the boat hull as ground. Always run a ground and a hot.
.

Just getting used to the lay of this land.

You certainly can use a small fuse panel up under the dash if you wish. www.amazon.com/Ancable-Circuits-Indicati...id=1614725394&sr=8-3
But I didn't bother on the '52. With only two switches (lights and ignition) and one external Ford type starter solenoid there is not all that much to wiring it.

It's very difficult to find much on these boats I find. I'd like to get notified if anyone responds to your topic. I've got to start on wiring a complete new set up as well but now sure where to install the main fuse Manuel. I was thinking underneath the bow somewhere which would be close to where the ignition lights and other accessories are located. I'll be nice to see some other photographs of what other people have done.

Has anybody posted anything about the best location for a fuse panel and good examples of proper wiring? I’ve searched through past posts and can‘t find too much.
