Electrical Panel

Hello everyone. I am the owner of a new to me Irwin 30 (1975). Just bought it, and I Love the boat. I ran into my first problem, and thought I would ask if anyone knew about the electrical breaker panel. It has been re done within the last few years (not orignal). The problem is... I plugged in the battery charger, saw a spark when the plug went into the dock power cord, and my panel went dead. Still had power to the bildge pump, voltmeter, blower. But radio, cabin lights and all the stuff powered from the panel went dead. I attempted to look behind the panel, and could not get behind it. After 10 minutes or so, power returned. Question 1... Do you think I have a loose wire or has anyone had the power return after awhile???? Second question... Does any one know how to access the back of the panel... It is bigger than the opening above the nav station. thank you for reading my post... Bob
