Electrical System

I completely rewired the boat in early 2017. My electrical system is rather unique in that all major electrical and electronic systems are isolated from everything else on the boat. The alternator positive lead and ground go directly to the house bank. The Starting battery is charged by the 2 - 40 watt solar panels (which also charge small electronic devices (iPads, iPhones, etc.). Also, instead of using circuit breakers I installed Blue Sea fuse blocks. The 4 solar panels and wind generator feed the house bank directly as well. All lights on board are Dr. LED, Hella, or LunaSea LED lights. Here are the diagrams for the ship’s electrical systems.
