Waltthesalt is on a distinguished road
I concurr with Blue Sea as being the best. When I rewired my Cal-29 I mounted new fuse switch panels on plastic "project boxes" that I got at Radio Shack and also from online vendors. Besides cost my reason for this DIY approach was several fold: I wanted to meet the ABYC standard for an fully enclosed pack on the panels which backed into the engine compartment; I wanted to do a second level of fused distribution inside the box behind the switchboard of some of the switches e.g. a switch for cabin lighting on the front panel feeding separately fused lighting circuts inside (one blows and I still have hald the lights); and finally I couldn't find commercial products with the switches I needed that would fit into the space I had available.
