    they where atached to the airbox, which i removed when i installed the velocity stacks. i was trying to rig up something under the cowl but it might be easyer to set them up in the boat... just looking to see if its ever been done.

    It's far easier to make a bracket, than move them outside the motor.

    Best place for them is under the cowl. Dry and warm. Shortest wire route also.

    Yes you can if you want. Just understand you are increasing current drop and a heavier gauge wire would be in order.

    and my grounds go to the negative batt terminal i would assume... that seems like the most logical.. or would there be some reason not to do it that way

    Sure and the hot can come directly from the battery also. No reason to run anything but the blue and green. Use good grade #12 wire. If you are using trim buttons on the wheel you may want to run those directly instead if the ones in the harness. With wiring...less is more...

    You absoutley can, I put all my relays for my tilt, and jackplate under the dash to keep them dry and clean up the motor. The wire runs are long, and I didnt hook up the switch that was on the motor, so that kinda sucks. You can but the wires need to go from the switch, to the relay back to the motor. The relays I used all snap together and the plugs to go with them. I have the turn signal style switches. I like that there out of the motor. I found the wiring diagram on google so they were all wired together before I installed them.

    Yes negative Ground. If you try to do a positive ground system you are going to burn some stuff up .

    when i rewired my boat i ran heavy wires from inside the motor cowl from + and - where the battery cables attached. i ran these wires to a fused terminal array. from there i can add any amount of circuits and accessories i need all with individual fuses. my jack plate and tilt relays are powered from their as well as the lights. the only thing connected to my battery posts are the #4 +- battery leads. this makes for a very clean installation with no extra wires running to the battery terminals. this is just my preference as its one of my pet-pieves( messy wiring) but it helps keep things neat and you can have labels and fuses for all your circuits. as well i have a master battery on off switch so i can shut down power to every circuit essentially. if i had extra power circuits wired to the batt terminals the batt cut off switch would not shut down those circuits. just some thoughts.
