Croixboy what was your reason behind the choice of 22ga wire? ABYC standards specify a minimum of 16ga wire for all marine wiring with the exception of manufacturer-installed pigtails on individual pieces of equipment.
Exactly! 22ga is just sooooo frail.

Hey guys yes I totally agree ... 16 gauge should and will be used as a permanent solution. I guess I should have explained I'm in the process of upgrading several things on the boat including cockpit lighting, anchor light/base, chartplotter/sonar upgrade, NMEA 2000 integration, etc. The pic I posted is a loose power-up test using 22 gauge, that I had on hand, matching the 22 gauge solderless connections that come with the LEDs. 16 gauge will be used when all wiring is complete. pelagic2530 good catch!
