smccormick Thanks it's for sure going to be a fun project which was one of the reasons for purchasing the boat I did, it was either a boat or another wrangler lol. As far as the VHF goes I was kind of gathering that it was personal preference and the biggest argument for putting it on the normal fuse block side was to prevent battery drain. This is something I would like to prevent as the boat is trailered and covered most of the time anyway. The only strong argument I've seen for it being on the 24hr circuit was in an emergency if something happened to your primary fuse box you wouldn't get power to your VHF though I kinda feel that if that short run of wire is for some reason compromised you have bigger problems and you're probably not going to have VHF regardless. Just curious what other peoples takes on this are especially those that run offshore on the regular.
