[C38] Electrical fire

I am looking for wiring improvement/update 

This weekend I had an electrical fire behind switch panel above chart desk. Melted many connections. Stopped when I turned off shore power and turned off both Perko switches. 

Boat US (my insurance company) is sending an adjuster and they say they will pay for labor ($125 per hour) to repair but little for parts because parts have depreciated. I assume most of repair will be labor. 

Right now Blue Eyes is "dead in the water." No electrical. 

On the positive side this seems to be an opportunity for me to upgrade antiquated and corroded electrical system. 

I'd appreciate any suggestions on specific upgrades. 

Thanks Skippers, 

Patrick Harpole
