Helm station terminal strips location

Postby Great laker » May 17th, 2015, 8:01 pm

I have a 3697 mariner (1986) the manual references positive and negative terminal strips at the helm. I pulled the footwell to try to locate them... I was expecting more or less standard strips, either with or without a cover. Am I blind or is the description in the manual misleading? Any insight?

They are there on mine. Pull the foot well lay on your back on the hole. Look up to the left.
I ran a new circuit up to the bridge, 30 amp. And a second up there at 50 amps for a separate bridge sound system.
Thanks
