(y) Just let them know how you want it done, Where you want the Switch and batteries located, orientation, proper marine cable (and lugs) routing and to use proper cable supports. Not zipties. Lots of "marine techs" take the fastest/shortest route.
A job done well with the proper materials goes a long way.

Question when you say cable support where is that needed. We are running new lines from bilge through a chase tube into console. Are you saying the cables should be supported before entering the chase tube or coming out of the chase tube before they connect to the batteries or both?

Outside of the chase at both ends to minimize vibration, anywhere where there is more than 8"+ of unsupported cable....but thats just me.

Trimming the motor up, about 3 or 4 clicks, helps quite a lot as well. My 2320 has a 4 blade prop, stock trim tabs, batteries relocated to the pilot house, permatrim and with the motor trimmed just right, makes a big difference in getting up on step quicker.
