Not familiar with your boat at all, however I'm sure you have switches that control the blower, the bilge pump, etc. I would try to gain access to the back of them and, using a simple VOM (volt-ohm meter), determine which wire becomes hot when the dash lights come on. It's all DC voltage so it shouldn't be too hard to figure out. Anyhow, once you find a wire that's hot when the dash lights are on, just tap into that wire.
And if you don't have a VOM, just head down to Rat Shack and buy yourself one. It doesn't have to be expensive or elaborate. This would be my pick:
Hope this helps. If not, you know where to find me.

Good deal Kev. And you're welcome. However.......
Problem solved. Looked at the back of the instruments and I could see the bulb socked that lights them up. There was a blue wire going to it. Unplugged the blue wire going to the tach and turned the lights on to make sure that was the wire. Well the light on the tach didn't come on so I unplugged the correct wire. Now I will tap into it. Thanks a bunch.
You still need to get off that rusty money of yours and buy a VOM! LOL.....
