Re: Jeanneau Attalia

I know its the weekend so most of you ''Northerners'' should be out sailing but I have another issue. I've been wanting to rewire the set up with the batteries. its just a jumble of wires with no fuses so its a hazard waiting to happen. I've been looking around reading various fora, specifically looking for pictures of a proper set up. The ones I can find all have lots of room. We Attalia-Arcadia owners do not. SO I was wondering about your own electricals. This is, I am ashamed to say, what I have:

I would like to secure the batteries a little better but I have very little clearance under the plywood. The charger also seems to heat quite a bit when charging. When I am on shore power, I leave the two plywood panels off the berth for better air circulation.
Now based in Barbados.... and wait for it.....the boat is too!

Waymar - Jeanneau, Attalia
