1: Any comments on the wiring? Where did you put the control box. Foot pedal controls, any thoughts on a remote as I will be single handing most of the time?
2. Any issues with the chain stacking and room for chain?
Thanks for your help, Thors pictures have already saved me a ton of time.
Battery Bank on Crazy Fish is under the settee just aft of the bulkhead between the head and the main saloon. 4 T105 fit there after I the shelf installed by PS was removed and a lower one installed.
Cables run there to a switch which is located on the same bulkhead on the far starboard side - back of switch is in the locker behind the head sink. From there they run along the top of the head locker and then above panels in the bunk area in the space created by the hull/deck joint. Cables are 1/0 or larger but I can't remember at the moment.
There is a deck switch mounted a bit aft and a bit to starboard of the windless.
