Wiring size for electronic refit on Morgan 41

I am doing an electronic refit on a Morgan OI 41 this weekend in SW Fla so I can get it moved to Ft Myers.

To save money, I can by 1000' of 12g multistrand in Nashville before I head down for $200.

Based on your experience, will this gauge wire work for all uses on this boat?

Also looking to replace the fuse panel with a breaker panel. Any suggestions on number of breakers for panel size?

Cheers

Re: Wiring size for electronic refit on Morgan 41

You need to purchase a book on 12v boat electrical...

You don't size the wire to save money you size it to get the proper voltage to where it is needed.
