Re: Simple electrical panel

Thanks. On the labels are they just stuck onto the wood? We finally got a label gun, but I was thinking that I needed to put the labels on something smoother than wood to be permanent.

I use interior/exterior gloss polyurethane on everything and I guess maybe 3 coats, sand flat and another 2-3 coats would give a good surface for the labels???

Have you mounted the panel in the boat yet? If so Pics?

Re: Simple electrical panel

Yeah the labels are just stuck to the wood over a single coat of stain (I didn't want it darker). However it's in a place that can't accidentally be hit or brushed very easily otherwise I might have given this situation more thought. After one season no problem. These are the bluesea labels I linked earlier.

But it certainly sounds like what you're suggesting would do it. If you were concerned about them falling off you could epoxy them down. I don't mind knowing that I could change them if I wanted.

I'd love to do a custom engine panel this year although it's hard to justify it has a priority when I have leaks and deck issues. But if I did I was considering designing a panel to be professionally printed. The engine panel is different of course because it's outdoors.

Here it is in the boat next to my less successful attempt to adhere cables with hotglue (I think the glue melted when the cabin got hot).
