473 Elecrical system

Yes it was from 09 and I too have sice created a schematic much like yours (not as polished), but thanks any way. We also love our 473 and have cruised on it extensively on the great lakes every summer. Your boat has some things we'd like to have (Thruster and Genset) but we have found that we really don't miss them much since getting used to handling her in tight quarters. Time spent on the hook is dealt with with three lifeline 4d's and a Honda inverter for back up. I built a leece neville 150 amp alt along with a balmar 3 stage VR which works wonderfully along with the AGM's. We have a westerbeke 63c with PYI feathering three blade. Wind is handled with North 3dl cruisng sails and a 155 genoa, an asymmetrical with a sock and snuffer for DW. Thought about buying a sense 50 this fall but after looking at what we have versus what we'd get for over a half MIL, we decided to stick with "ozymandias".

Cheers,

Marc
