Electric wiring

Over the next month I fitted all the electric cabling, engine electrics, wired up the navigation.

My father came up from Weston and wired the main switch panel and all the 220 volt electrics.

I also wired up and built the cockpit engine and navigation panel. Then I ran the cables for the navigation lights.

The windlass came next. My good friend Franc had got hold of some armoured cable which was perfect for the windlass.

It had to be of the largest cross section I could lay my hands on and would run 8 meters to the bow of the boat and 8 meters back. Franc helped me fit it and tested it as he was an electrician. No voltage drop at all he said. <<Next Hydraulic Steering Fiasco>>
