Marine Electrician recommendation in So Cal

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a recommendation for a marine electrician in the southern california area, as I have two projects that I could some expert assistance with.

1) I think my flexible solar panels may have reached the end of their life, as far as I can tell by the panel, they don't seem to do be doing much of anything, plus when I flip from shore power to inverter, nothing seems to happen and..

2) It's definitely time to replace / upgrade my (probably original switches) on the boat, as some of them don't work anymore and I have tape over a few of them to remind myself not to shut them off, as they probably won't turn on again.

So I'd appreciate any recommendations you fine folks might have.

Fair Winds,
~Nick

Hi Mark,

My boat is in the long beach area. Would that be within his travel range?

I've also discovered a third problem, my house batteries seem to be on a continual drain, and it looks like they are not being recharged from either the solar panels or while the engine is running, so yeah, I definitely need to talk to an electrician and soon.

Thanks!

Thanks for the recommendation Mark, that was a great lead. Met with him today, turns out my battery charger is dead... ugh. So glad I know though... can get it remedied pretty quick.

Thanks again!
