Re: Wire labeling
Coming as I do from an industrial background, I use a labeling system from an industrial products company called Panduit, with the one I use, having both numerals and alphabetic symbols. I keep a small note book in a niche below my electrical panels containing the "Codes". Some of the simpler, LNB= lights navigation bow=Bow Light. LNM=lights navigation masthead. LCF=lights cabin forepeak. LCSP/S=lights cabin salon port/starboard. NMFD=navigation multi. funct. display. etc.,etc.. I use accepted marine wiring color codes as much as possible and make notations as needed for any variations. I place the labels approx. 4"to 6" from fixture and termination at electrical panel.
