Customer Question
I have a 1993...

I have a 1993 Maverick flats boat with a 1995 Yamaha 150 and am trying to rewire the entire boat. the harness under the 3 guages (Tach,Speed and Water pressure ) looks like a rats nest/spaghetti farm of joined wires. Is ther any harness I could buy that would clean this mess up? thanks, ***** *****

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

Not that I can think of, but that might leave the door open to a lot of stuff :-). tks

Hi, sorry for the delay.

T​he Yamaha gauge wiring harness closest to what you need is likely a 6Y5-83553-N0-00​ . Most boat manufacturers of that era used their own in house harnesses but this is more of a universal one. They are readily available around $30.
