Scotty, (Replace Old DC Breaker Panel) When Will I Have My Warp Power On Line ?

I Need to Replace My DC Breaker Panel.

Some of the breakers are broken and soft when switched on & off.

I did some searching and buying a straight DC Panel is not a problem, about $ 500.00 bucks.

I will be adding a 7.5 K (?) generator. I want to buy diesel to match my diesel engine, and draw from it's tank. I have gas generators but don't want gas powered gen's. on board. Just, guessing, I may not have a lot of room and do some work to fit the gen. in place. I may have to drop down in size to fit (gen.) it in place, maybe only a 5K, I need a min. of -- 5 K for A/C power.

My Question, What Spec. (DC/ AC) Panel Do I Need ____ to match up to the AC generator ?

My 42 YO (1970) old boat is: Islander 37, MS [ see old DC panel pic's. ]

Has anyone (with old boat) added a gen. & replaced their on old DC Panel ? I'd like to hear

______ what you did (bought) and how's it working ?

Would you have changed (your choice) things later, ... you found a better choice

___________ including recommendation on __________ gen's. too ?
