Virtually all wiring is located high and accessible by removing panels from under the side decks. All wiring is 10 gauge stranded copper with crimp type connectors used at all junctions or terminals. All wiring is color coded with DC wiring as two-wire and AC as three-wire. Metallic fittings (through hulls, etc.) below the water line are electrically bonded together with 8 gauge copper wire and connected to the ships common ground. The standard battery configuration consisted of two 12-volt batteries connected in parallel and are charged from the engine alternator.
