EIM Replacement System

We have developed replacement panels and a full wiring harness which converts your boat to reliable Carling switches. All components are traditional top quality robust marine components that are easy to obtain and easy to service in the field.


We have posted videos on our Youtube Channel, Please visit www.YouTube.com/fpmarine
Our kit includes a new circuit breaker box that is pre-wired to the new switch panels. You will have to disconnect the main power and ground feeds from your old Forward EIM and transfer it to the new circuit breaker box. Instructions are included.

The aft EIM box will be replaced by a similar sized box which contains some connection devices and relays. You simply disconnect the 40 pin plug, power feeds and ground lead, then connect them to our new box and 40 pin harness plug.

It will be necessary to cut some fiberglass to accept the new switch panels and you will have to run the new harness and secure the wires.

This kit will retrofit 280 Sundancer, 300 Sundancer, 320 Sundancer, 340 Sundancer, 280 and 290 Bow Rider Sunsports, and any other model with the "Kidney shaped" EIM touchpads/EIM system. 1718630 1759175 1718618 1606581 1810626 1810625. The 290 and 310 Sundancers are the same kit however the switch panels are "eyebrow" shaped, not "Kidney" shaped. We have a separate listing for those 2 boats.

DNA part numbers included 91YY5084 91YY5085 91SW5084 91SW5085

We offer a 1 year warranty on the components. We will supply replacement components that fail due to manufacturers defects for a period of 1 year from date of purchase. Warranty does not include labor.

I just wanted to let you know that the install went well. I now have working switches again. The install instructions were straight forward. I had to remove about a 2”x2” from the fiberglass to make the switches on the right side fit. I also used my previous ignition.

Thank you for all of your help."

290 Sundancer -(Customer installation) -

Thank you for all your help, my brother and I finally figured out the problem. Everything is working and I am so relieved I can enjoy my boat again. The replacement product is very well designed, thanks again.


I called FP Marine Monday morning and asked questions about your EIM replacement for my 2003 SeaRay 200BR you gave me all info so I ordered your system and received it Wed. It looked very professional and included all hardware and directions. It was about 2hrs to install and worked perfect. I would recommend your system to any sea ray owner to replace a very bad EMI system, sea ray should have installed your system to start with. Thanks FP Marine. Randy

Hi Ed , this has been the best replacement I have ever did on anything! Everything was just plug and play! The only modification I needed to do is cut bigger hole in the side cavity to push harness through. The new replacement looks much better then original! Thank you for building this with such a quality!

Thank you again! Dmitri


Everything went well with the install, I believe the customer will be very happy. If you have any further questions please feel free to give me a call at 770-720-2922. Thanks


Recently I purchased and installed myself, the EIM replacement system for my 2007 Sea Ray 320 Sundancer. I am very pleased with the quality and looks of the new toggle/rocker switches; what a big improvement over the original switches. Initially when I saw the new replacement wiring harness, it looked very complicated but actually turned out to be fairly simple to install. Everything matched up perfectly, adjustments had to be made to the dash to make the new switches fit but the templates made that easy. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is having trouble with their switches like I did. Now everything works like it is supposed to and they look great. Everyone that I spoke to at FP Marine were very helpful with the questions I had. Thank you so much for developing this product and making my boating more enjoyable.

Thanks again, Marty


I have attached several photos of the completed project. The sun didn't cooperate and I will try to get better shots next week.

Note that the dash is not perfectly flat at these locations so I didn't crank down on the bottom screws. The plates flex slightly in this installation.

It is a very straight forward installation but takes a little effort due to access and cutting the holes. You remove the access panel in the storage area behind the dash to get access to the wiring. Cutting the holes would probably be best done with a Dremel tool and blade for fiberglass. I used several different tools. The actual wire harness connections are straight forward and very easy to complete. It does take a few hours due to the required hole cutting.

Looks fantastic when complete and works great! Love the back light on the symbols. I didn't expect that.

On another issue, do you make replacement dash panels for the 220SD. I could send you my old dash panel as a template. I would need a slight modification in the standard hole templates since I use 3 large gauges (standard is 2) and 1 fewer small gauge.



WE have modified the size of the panels since this feedback

Thank you for a product that does exactly what you say it does and for a great price. It would have cost much more if I had rewired this myself. I am an owner, of a 2002 Sea Ray 300 Sundancer. As many of you now Sea Ray makes a very good boat but like all manufacturers some ideas look great on paper don’t always work out in a practical way when the harsh environments like salt water come into play. Sea Ray made touch pad type switching sytem that looks great and worked well till last year. So I got 19 years out of the original electrical components. I don’t think you can ask for much better than that. Thankfully the folks at Flounder Pounder Marine have a replacement solution that is actually better than the original equipment. Not only is it more mechanical than electronic but it really looks great and matches the original wood grain look of the rest of my helm station. The system really is plug and play. I’m an electrician so this never seemed like a big deal to install. However I know most look at this as a really big job. Trust me, if you have a moderate level of mechanical ability the professionals at FP Marine have taken out the hard portion of this job by making the harnesses and equipment customized to your boat. Therefore the installation and operation is easy. DO NOT HESITATE TO SPEND THIS MONEY! You will not regret your decision.

Regards, Ed

5 of 5 Excellent Solution for Sundancer Owners March 2, 2022
Reviewer: Joplin Marine Solutions, LLC from Kemah, Texas  
We had a customer with bad switch panels and no real options.  He would attempt to turn on nav lights and the anchor would drop.  Not just functional, but safety issues.

In less than 4 hours (in our first exposure to this kit), we had everything installed and running on the first try with absolutely zero issues.  Very well thought out solution with brilliant execution!  If 6 stars were available, I would have selected that!  

I'm looking forward to finding more customers that need this fix.  Great work FP Marine!

5 of 5 EIM replacement system August 8, 2020
Reviewer: Joe Luongo from Selden, NY United States  
This system not only took care of any electrical issues I had but it looks great and is definitely a unique Addition to my dash. Ken was extremely helpful and the product installed and performs just as stated. This may seem pricey but when you see how well engineered it is you’ll know why. I am very mechanical however this system is so very well engineered and self explanatory, everything is marked for plug and play installation, it took just about 5 hours start to finish, could be a bit less with an extra pair of hands. If you have any of these boats with these discontinued EIM’s it is surely A valued investment/addition for your pleasure or resale.
