Also, I like the painter's tape listing the use on the ground/breaker panels. Any thought to putting something more perm to identify years down the road or are you identifying the terminal ends of the cables.
access is always considered, when you open the lower console door the batteries will be right there, nothing in the way but the hold downs and the cables. we are toying with a shelf above them we will see when its all filled up with modules. the verado rigging will be above the batteries on a piece of vertical starboard, the rigging harness can be tucked behind it and between the footwells (where yellowfin stuffs it) we were gonna put the batteries in the leaning post above the livewell on a custom bracket but chose the console for simplicity and access. we instead are putting tackle storage there (under the rear facing backrest)
the footwell will be removable and gasketed instead of semi-permanently sealed. the whple board with the simrad sounder and radar modules fits through the hole and can lay on deck
the painters tape was just for planning and reference, we will label the wires and the fuse covers once the label maker shows up.

ive been maintaining and fishing this 39 for 2 seasons and have been involved with Yellowfins in the NE, particularity rigging and electronics, i cant emphasis how exciting it is to customize one like this with what we have learned over the past years.

Nice work!
Do you mind telling me where you bought the battery hold down hardware?
Getting ready to mount another pair of batteries for a trolling motor and that setup would work great

I cannibalized these for the studs and knobs, the rest is hand built for both engines and house, as the trays would not fit in either location.

you can get stainless allthread and hardware stores usssualy have knobs

Just wanted to share the system, notice the nominal and max amperage ratings... by the time we add FLIR, the stereo and the USB chargers we have the potential to pull 100A from the electronics alone..

Didnt see any update on the switch panels. What we did is just waterjet our design out of .120 aluminum, intended for using the carling switches, which I really like the feel of. Put extra spots in there that I mounted extra unused switches in. I hydrodipped and airbrushed them after for a wood look but they're simple and durable. We just used external mounted screws for quick access if needed, if youre looking for ideas.

thats great thank you! We arent 100% on switch arrangement, the owner is in Miami looking at different setups today and this weekend.

we may go with carling rockers, heres out 3 options

https://rockerswitchpros.com/

Pros:
  • individual baclkight and indication circuits
  • Custom etched translucent rockers available simplifying installation and panel fabrication
  • easily obtained/replaced
Cons:
  • not a fan of slip on connectors
  • will require remote or local circuit protection

Bocatech resettable and smart switches

Pros:
  • Slick look
  • back lighting installed
  • built in circuit protection
  • Customizable colors and etchings
Cons:
  • 4 ft leads complicates installation
  • Backlight is single circuit, if we want indication we will need a custom translucent module with etched logos and LED tied into nav circuit
  • Smart Switches arent exactly ABYC compliant and would need circuit protection to satisfy the standards
  • hard to find locally and replacement may prove tricky depending on lead termination technique
Carling MS Series Sealed MINI Military breaker switches, (my personal favorite selection for pure ruggedness and simplicity)

Pros:
  • Military standard equipment, failure unlikely
  • negates the need for remote circuit protection
  • Screw terminal, makes switch replacement easier than 4 ft leads, more robust than a slip on connector and allows for a "common link bar" to tie the feeds in rather than piggy backed connections
  • Did i Say MIL-SPEC?
Cons:
  • indication and identification lighting will need to be a 100% custom made rear mounted module to sit flush with dash ( I am up for the challenge)
  • Some say they may not be fashionable... but a little black boot looks slick IMHO
  • Replacement may be an issue, but did i mention MIL-SPEC?

getting the console filled out. I really like the breaker block from blue seas. i put the livorsi trim tabs and the under-gunnel outlets. Im going to feed the outlet circuits with a relay so they can be dash operated and arent on (and corroding) all the time.

got most of the engine cabling done, just need to run grounds.

got the NMEA2000 structured and the electronics leads to the tower/hardtop dressed out. (before the fuse panel for the overhead electronics was sealed up in the overhead so I moved it to the console)

and lastly i got most of the engine battery cabling done, need some more black.

Heres our concept on the layout. we have decided to go with Bocatech switches on a carbon fiber translucent. we are going to take the 9" out of the helm and move it overhead, this will declutter the dash.

blue bocatech switches except for the bilge pumps, we will probably square up the trim tabs too, instead of them being higher like in the photo.

got the simrad system fired up (well whats installed) on the old dash and the new dash has arrived. ill be getting the template sent out tomorrow

holy wiring man hours. any thought given to lithium batteries? as for the switches are your doing the bocatech switches with the breakers built in? seems like it would make wiring easier. one thing I wish YF did was have ONE central panel with all breakers. i loathe any in line fuse. I used a panel from YF - with bocatech knock offs - some of which were replaced with bocatechs - they're not too bright and quality is top notch. I wish I could have added a few more switches (have a couple of rockers knee high under the lip where the keys are).i'd suggest whomever makes the panel, build in mounting posts on the back instead of having visible screws if you can - just looks cleaner. you can also do away with the vessel view and use the black box model that puts all the engine data on the simrads in a myriad of layouts.

there won’t be any visable screws. There won’t even be that much visible carbon fiber!

no thoughts to lithium, we want serviceability and easy replacement and acquisition of parts (the Bocatech goes completely against this principle)
we also plan on going with the VV gateway and putting the 9" overhead to replace the ugly old broken VV7.

I loath inline fuses myself, Im big fan of resetable thermal breakers but i prefer fuses for electronics. we were going to go with MS thermal breaker switches but indication became an issue with some "custom" panel fabricators I talked to. plus the Bocatech will help resale I think.

Wired up the grounds and made a cover for the engine batteries, this facilitates some storage and the owners request to be able to access the batteries without tools.still needs hardware and clean power for the Verados.
