Over the last few days I have been rewiring the power distribution and making a new nav station panel
I have ripped out a lot more old cables as I went along, the old battery ground circuits were like a spiders web with cables spliced in all over, plus many circuits had no fuses. Everything now goes through proper grounding points and fused switch panels. Later I will install a seperate ground for radio circuits. I have settled on two fused switch panels, an priginal one near the cockpit hatch for nav lights, winch, bilge etc, stuff needed on the move, and a new 12 way at the nav station for everything else. These panels plus more power hungry circuits such as autopilot go through a seperate fuse box behind the nav panel. 2 circuits are in so far, saloon lights and the fridge.
