I installed the filter yesterday. Then I tested it with my noisy anchor light temporarily connected to my fuses box spare contacts.

The noise was gone and the the AM-FM radio sound was crystal clear.

Damn- I wish my boat had all those nifty labels on all the electrical. How many hours have I lost flipping switches and holding volt meter prongs on contacts, waiting for a response?

The boat had a light starboard list when I bought it.

I moved the home battery from starboard to port, and then added a second battery while replacing the old one with a new.

I installed an electrical head with the Vetus poach. It had me install a fuse box. In the process, I pretty well revised the electricity. So the labels came just naturally since they are mandatory according to canadian federal standard for small boats. The electricity on my boat is fully compliant with canadian standard TP 1332.

This year I installed a flush mounted VHF with a second station on the pedestal. No visible wires.

I put in a Grommex splitter so my AM-FM receiver is hooked to the top of mast antenna.

The anchor light wire and the coax for the antenna are in a conduit inside de mast. I installed it myself, three years ago.

I am awaiting the delivery of my DEL bulbs any day now. I will then have all the lighting on DELs.

I am kind of proud of the electrical and electronic set-up of Tibato
