Cabin lights

Now that we have the nice new LED lights I figured it was time to start fitting them. Shouldn’t take long methinks? Hadn’t figured on the standard of wiring in this boat.
It’s all right this was done by a professional.

I always thought that the connection away from the source of power should be male and from the live side an insulated female and no bare wire should be visible. I am not surprised every joint has several layers of insulation tape. I prefer shrink wrap myself but only to stop the join pulling apart.
If I am wrong please correct me.

Beginning to think Ben did Tom a favour when he ripped the wiring out of Waiouru. I shall feel safer when all the wiring in this boat has been checked.
