    I Just Recently Bought A 1973 Mastercraft And The Stereo's Power Wire Is Connected Directly To The Battery Which If Left On Will Run My Battery Down. Is There Anyway Of Wiring It To The Ignition Switch To Power On Only When The Boat Is On?

    Thanks For Any Help,

    You can connect it to the accesory on the switch if it has it. Connecting it to the ignition switch may overload the feed wire depending on what power you require.
