Re: Rewiring a 220-240v boat to 110v?
Winches and nav equipment will run off your house batteries, typically at 12 volts DC. Only the charger will require the 220v.
If you are going to be predominantly in the US or areas with 110v 60hz service, it is a significant inconvenience to have the wrong set up. Even receptacle adapters don't work well at all.
Converting over to 110v is not the most significant project, its buying all new appliances, but how many do you actually have? Lighting, refrigerators, radios, nav equip, etc are all going to be DC and not an issue. It's the generator (which may be convertible too), battery chargers, invertor, receptacles, microwave, etc.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
