Wiring a boat can seem like a simple proposition for a boat builder. After all, the principles of electricity don't change when you're on the water. But there are concerns that any marine wiring job needs to keep front and center. So before you design a circuit diagram for your next boat, keep this in mind.
Even a sailing ship needs a good electrical system.
When you're on the water, an electrical failure can be annoying or even outright dangerous. Without electrical power, you might be stuck unable to navigate, use the radio, or even have lights on. If you want to ensure a good, safe time on the water, make sure you're addressing these factors before they become problems.
