Electrical Upgrade

Hi guys
I just want to add a consideration concerning high amp fuse holders below boards. there highly suseptable to corrosion. especially near the battery. Heavy battery cables are if routed sensibly are fairly invunerable to damage. a fuse bar out of the reach of the elements adn away from or protected from any source of a short may be prefferable. I like circuit breakers because they reset. when you run out of fuses your left with foil.

We are about to undertake rewiring our boat. In you estimation, which marine wiring book is the best for those who have limited wiring experience?

Thanks

It is a Pearson 422. We are adding and replacing most of the electronics. The previous owner did some re-wiring that is suspect.

Electrical Upgrade

I am in the process of upgrading all of my electrical system.. To date I have 2 six vo;t Trojan T-105 batteries connected in series, a 120 Amp alternator, an extenal regulator, Heat fuse and regualtor, a Heart Link 10 Monitor, a 13 breaker panel with battery amp gauges,and an 8 breaker panel. Later this summer I am going to add a solar panel (120 Volt.) I am also rewiring all circuts. The batteries will provide 225 amps, they are inexpensive and do not weigh like a D4 or D8. The alternator and related equipment was expensive (1027) form Jack Rabbit marine. I sent a list to Sailnet but they did not get back to me in time.

It is a lot of $$ and work but will be worth it as I will be energy independant as I can be. I run an Alder Barbour Super Cold machine, 2 GPS, a JRC Radar, occasionally a 13" TV and sometimes a stereo.
