Re: EFI Outlet in cockpit.
If I've got this right, all the other receptacles on the boat will power up with the invertor/genset, other than the one in the cockpit.
First, its not uncommon that an invertor only powers some circuits and not others. More often this is because of capacity. In the OP's case, I'm betting a nickle the electrician intentionally excluded a 110v outlet in the cockpit, assuming one may not want live 110v power in a wet environment while underway. Keeping it out of the circuit would prevent someone below from throwing a switch that ruined the cockpit crew's day.
