Re: Blue Sea custom electrical panel opinions
I like the idea of consolidating circuits, but this is a pretty small and simple boat and adding a sub panel in the cockpit seems like it would be more work than the ease of flipping on the nav lights at the helm station might justify. I'll look at it and see how much work that would involve, though.
I am pretty sure that if I go the custom panel route I'm going to move the battery switch off the new panel, though, and add a few spare breakers on the DC side and ditch the ammeter and add a few spare AC breakers. Looking at the stock AC and DC panels that Chef suggest has gotten me to thinking about going that route and moving the whole show away from the companionway and creating some better physical separation between the AC and DC circuits and gear.
So many things to consider!
Thanks again for the comments and ideas.
