Electrical wiring Diagrams
I am about to rebuild my AC on board panel, I would like to find a source for a wiring diagram that covers twin shore inlets manual switching for a 7.5kw genset, reverse polarity etc. In fact a complete AC circuit any ideas?

A boat electrical book. Amazon.com has alot.
That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life.

I rewired/redesigned my AC and DC not long ago. A big job. I think Nigel Calder's books are helpful and current (no pun intended). I also found Charlie Wing's "boatowner's illustrated handbook of wiring" very helpful. wing's book also includes the related ABYC standards. The Federal govt funds a "Sea Grant" program which is usually run by local universitities. In our area this includes training courses usually several nights. One they run is on wiring for boatowners. You may want to Google this for your area.

could I make a small point, If you cant understand from reading the tech articles whats needed, that I suggest you dont do it yourself. Blindly following a " stock" diagram, without realising whats actually happening could be very dangerous
