Electrical Upgrade

oh this is gonna be bad....

I''m almost done rewiring my boat...

Whats the ABYC and where can I find their standards?

I used tinned wires, built my own switch and fuse box (breakers are EXPENSIVE!) and used liquid electrical tape on every connection, but I''d like to see what I need to now rip out and do over to get up to code (didnt know there was a code) I only used 14 gauge, but the longest run is 8 feet (20'' boat) so the loss isnt that bad. Blah..
