Perhaps...but this thread led me to look for the ABYC codes on line and all I can find are links that request a large registration fee and significant fees to access each of the codes...or more significant fees to access each if not a "member" of ABYC. Only thing I can find that is open is wiring codes for color and current carrying capacity.

Think I will rely on open source and experience and common sense until they fail me.

Why are the codes behind firewalls requiring payment? Never mind...I know...because "they" can make money by charging for them.

Doesn't make sense to me to have "codes" that everyone is expected to meet and then keep them "secret" unless you pay...but this isn't the first time something hasn't made sense to me and probably won't be the last.
