I have a couple of mid-sized sailboats to renovate and want to plan wiring and plumbing before I start. Also, when I sell one of these boats, I want to turn a set of diagrams over to the new owner.

Any recommendations for free or reasonably-priced software (Windows 7 operating system)?

The software doesn't have to provide professional-grade diagrams, but I don't want too rustic, either.

Thanks in advance.

Any drawing program should work just fine. I happen to use Microsoft Visio for that kind of stuff, but I suspect its more money than you want to spend.

Someone had made a great wiring diagram on here and I asked him what program he used.

Powerpoint was the answer. You can download Libre Office, Open Office or use Google's powerpoint clone online, all for free.

I prefer the Libre Office for this type of thing, hence the link. :)

Open Office Presentation - who'd-a-thunk it? I'll give it a shot and let you know. I'm also trying open source DIA, but it's missing a few nice-to-have features.

Keep the ideas coming, and I'll post my findings when I've made a choice

Thanks
