Locating mercury ignition switch
Having a problem with locating the ignition switch for my mercury outboard. I have a bankes Chesapeake running a 40hp mercury. The ignition switch has about a 4ft pigtail on it but I literally have no where to mount the switch. The local marina installed it some time ago near the sliding rear bench seat but I ended up bending the key from crawling out the boat in that area. It is nearly impossible to lift and slide the seat to access the gas tank and battery. I guess it would be easier to explain with the aid of pictures. I thought about mounting the switch to the motor itself but that would leave the key even more exposed and subject to loss. I am really stuck, any ideas would definitely help . I will try and get some pics posted soon.

Jeff.
