Thanks for any suggestions you can make.

Boating electrical system is relatively simple. It is not much to it. If you are far from any instruction class loaction, I would just get a good book and spend a few nite reading you are good to go.

I have a few books but I like the best. It is much better than the one Nigle wrote. Sailboat Electrics Simplified (0639785800361): Don Casey: Books Sailboat Electrics Simplified (0639785800361): Don Casey: Books

If someone still remember their 2nd seamster Physics in college, just go back to review your text book, you are good to go.

Of course, YMMV
