About $150 for the plastic, layout and engraving. $50 a switch for the resetable switches. This can be installed by the average user. Not that bad.

Mike. Details on the switches? Would like to read up on them. I'm working on a design that I would like you to do and interested in the switches you are using.

Looks fantastic.

The switches are made by Bocatech. These are matched up by load and can do up to 20 amps. They also contain resettable breakers. This eliminates all jumpers and breaker on the panel.

So the bottom line:

You pay more for hardware.
You pay less in labor.
User installable.

Do they make the switches in non breaker models? I have my switches currently powered from a fuse panel. Also I assume the back is just male blade connectors?

Yes they make them without the breakers. They are about half the price. You will get leads off the back of the switches no blades.

That's cool about having them without the breakers. I don't mean to derail but I know you make custom panels. Can you go off a current panel(s) that I have and install the switches and also cut out spots for electronics and gauges?

We can template your current panel and cut out for any switch, breaker, electronics that you may have. We have all the templates in our CAD already.

I think the main reason I chose to rebuild a boat is so I could order a custom switch panel. I'm kidding of course but it's one of the top three things I'm most excited about. Just sent yuo an email.

We replace about 2 Moritz systems per week. Here is one example.
