Re: Running Out of Panel Switches

Thanks for all the advice.
Will get out to the boat and snap a few pictures. I like the use of breakers but have older fused switches. Like the idea of combining external nav lights.

That depends on the plotter. Look at the specs. The displays on larger plotters can draw more than the radar.

Re: Running Out of Panel Switches

I added a panel just for the nav lights, all grouped into one panel - see attached pic. Blog post here on it here

On there is

- Running Lights
- Steaming Light
- Anchor Light
- Red over Green (mislabeled as tricolour while I wait for custom label)
- Spreader Lights
- Spare
