    Wire connections from mast base to deck plug

    TWalker, just 2 wires at deck plug. So maybe the plug unplug routine was being used by former owner. White stern light, yes, had one and always worked though I just replaced it as lens got broken. Multimeter will get some use in the next two days to figure this out.

    Wire connections from mast base to deck plug

    Just posted requested picture. The black plug you see on short strand of wire is what I obviously also need to replace but I inherited this along with all these wires. I am thinking former owner did some rewiring work/efforts but the plug was gone when boat bought.
