Help me rewire my sailboat
It's time to tackle the electrical panel.
I just purchased a Hunter 37 cutter and I am redoing the interior. At this time I am working on the electric wiring and have a question for you experts.
Should I wire every circuit using single marine wire (of proper gauge and color) such as black for ground and diferent color for each circuit. (same as car wiring) or can I run every circuit using marine sheathed cable (of proper gauge) that has red and black in the same sheath.(similar to wiring a house, circuits are labeled)
It seems that using sheathed cable would be neeter and faster. Both ends can be labeled or numbered.
What is the norm???.
Your advise is welcomed
The faster I go, the more she likes it!!
