The ssb, autopilot etc are just additional circuits. First you need a panel that works - either fuses or breakers - that has enough circuits or 2 smaller ones maybe. The positive and negative feed wires come from the battery to these with the positive passing through the main switch. Each circuit - lighting, vhf, autopilot, ssb, etc each have their own breaker or fuse and positive feed. The negatives are common.

Someone posted that it is sometimes easier to rip it all out and start again. In my experience with the wiring in the condition of yours it is always easier to remove it and start again. Wiring is not hard - just take it one step at a time and ask any questions you need answered.

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

You shouldn't need to pay an electrician. Do it yourself.

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

Bummer! So sorry to hear that. Is it too smashed to be able to still do a test sail when the other things are finished?

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

apparently the pulpit that I just fixed and polished is trashed as well as the bow piece that holds the rollers and pads for the forestay which is what really worries me...that would be a peice that requires a lot of fab work...not to mention a lot of fitting and nuts and bolts to rebed etc....

also some cosmetic glass work

sucks big time..Ill take pics tomorrow morning when I get there...

and here I thought I was about to go sailing

JA

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

From my understanding of the way it works down there I imagine they have no insurance what are the chances they will make good on the damage? Suck for sure even if they do the right thing and have the boat fixed for you.

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

yeah I dont have insurance thats a fact and the other guy seems to be either canadian or american cruiser

Im just dissapointed and sad mostly, it just seems like this project was never meant to be

the good news is I have an awesome or so far at least great stainless fabricator...but if my rigging got bent or damaged or if the bow peice cracked the glass or whatever then its structural issues and that will just delay the hell out of the project

in any case...

thanks for the support

Ill try to post some pics tomorrow

christian

Re: Islander 36 projects in paradise!!!!!

Just keep at it, man. You will get there. Check out Untie the Lines #1 - #40 on YouTube if you haven't already seen it. I have a total crush on this German woman who bought a boat in Panama last Fall with the intent of cruising the world. The boat turned out to be in sad sad shape and she is just now starting to get out there to sail it. She was considering just giving up when she discovered some pretty bad corrosion in the aluminum hull... but she soldiered on and is all the better for it. We all have those "f**k it!" days. I certainly have. But somehow you figure it out. You will this time too. Tally ho!
