Shore Power

Published date: July 9, 2015
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

Added the shore power for water heater, Air Conditioner, battery charger and distributed outlets. All circuits are ground fault protected.

Moved DC panel location to left. Used Blue Sea 6 position panel.

Had to file a hole in the week fiberglass above the chine under the galley for the three wires to pass thru. Used flexible marine grade 14/3 wire.

Used the shallow blue boxes as backing nuts to minimize the outlet holes. Worked perfect.

Not a difficult job.
