A note from Rumery's about Electrical Systems
Batteries: choose the right ones and the right location.
Make sure your wiring is up to ABYC standards.
Any AC wiring on board must be protected from accidental exposure to you or your crew (or the techs).
Make sure you are not leaking any current into the water around your boat or dock.
Be certain that your critical pumps are wired properly and not shut off when your batteries are off.
ELCO ELECTRIC PROPULSION
The greenest & smartest way to repower!
A critical part of your boat's systems. You might know where everything is, but in an emergency situation will your crew be able to find the right breaker? Will they put themselves at risk if they open the panel while the boat is being rocked and tossed about?
Your electrical system should be laid out so that it is safe in the most extreme conditions, not just when tied to your slip.
