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?
