Oh Sorry.... some of this is AC House wiring as well...The positive main DC bus is attached to the under side of the shelf/work bench from lack of space and to keep all hot wire terminals better protected...It has the heave gauge battery cable attached to it that you are looking for...I dont have a picture of this...sorry.

Also the wiring was not 100% completed in this picture.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Now that's what I'm talkin' about!

Scott, what's that blue dealy-bob with the black wires going to it underneath the left panel?

That is an AC source selector switch. Used for shorepower/ generator switching or possibly shorepower/inverter switching. Shown below.

The 2 shunts are for battery monitors (one is visible in the upper right) and/or ammeters.

Your plan sounds good to me. Yes, multiple connections are allowed on the busses, up to 4 per stud although I try to keep it to less when possible.
What size cable are you running to the fuse blocks?

I stayed off the water Monday and Tuesday while it was blowing. Sun came out Weds when I was out checking JRD22's neck of the woods.

BTW, after watching your video on refinishing your floor, I went out and bought a decent router bit set at home depot. OMG, nothing like having the right tool for the job. I can make saw dust wood chips much more efficiently now.

Chip,

I'll tell you a good place to put batteries in our boats, and it's closer to the centerline...providing your year boat is built like mine.

In the berth area under the two large pull out drawers, there is a long door that opens downward to the floor. We have a large gel (8G8D) located in that space in a hold down box mounted length wise, and there might be room for two of those batteries there...might be a tight fit though. It's a good place for no maintenance batteries, if the batteries are not to high.

Maybe I missed it somewhere in this thread but how is that box ventilated? Batteries are required to be ventilated. That includes AGM and Gel cells. Otherwise that box becomes a bomb waiting for a spark. That is also why none of the electrical equipment should be in the box with the batteries.

Yes, a vent at the top of one side of the locker to let gases escape is required but is easy to accomplish.

There is a vent but it only about the size of my finger.
I will make a larger one.

Also the wood covers fit loosely and there are just cushion’s on top. Not good for the cushion’s I suppose.
It is not a sealed box.
Thanks for the incite.
