'82' C27 Electrical
Good day all,
Let me start by saying this is a C27 Traditional layout. Looking for some suggestions, I'm planning out a new electrical plan for my boat and would like to get some ideas (and/or Photos).
- Battery bank - (2 batteries total) i've been reading alot on here and it's great advice. The batteries are located on the Starboard side midship, will have combiner, charger and solar hooked up.
- Main battery switch to stay in same location, Port side by floor under stove, unless there's a draw back to this.
- Distribution panel (8 switches DC / 3 switches AC)? was looking at locating it on the clost wall Port side (it was cut out for a stereo). Another thought was Starboard side against cockpit wall (where instruments are now), make a small cabinet. Have a plan for new instruments, swing out pod into compaionway.
One question, how long is the comm cable on the BMV-600 Battery monitor? Another and question and a basic one, on the batteries your have two posts Per +/-, I know the bigger posts are desinged for High current, but alot of the pics i've seen use the small posts only, any comments.
Thanks, in advance this is a start, and I'll share my setups as I go, hopefully some of them will helpout other captains and not just on C27.
