What switch?

Does anyone recognize what switch board this is? Out of a 1983 wellcraft.

I am looking to add another circuit for pressure water. And just need the switch and fuse.
Thanks!Click image for larger version

Re: What switch?

The fuse holder is easy, and I'd get the switch from the same place probably Ebay or Amazon, and if you want a perfect match, replace the two that are there

Re: What switch?

if you take the panel off, you should see some manufacturers markings on the back.


Electrical wiring on a boat is no joke. Make sure you know exactly what you need to do. Also remember fuses and circuit breakers are meant to protect your wire NOT the equipment. They are there to prevent your wires from getting too hot and perhaps causing a fire. Since it's a water pump, you will also want to learn about proper grounding to prevent electricity from leaking and causing corrosion elsewhere someplace you just weren't expecting.

I will have to take it off and have a look. Anyone have a link to the switches that fit into this type of panel?

Re: What switch?

They're standard toggle switches. If they need to match buy enough to replace all of them. Same with the fuse holders. Standard off the shelf stuff there

Re: What switch?

This is 30+ years old panel, consider replacing all switches with something of decent quality. They look to be standard size, so most parts shops should have replacements. I would go for IP65 or IP67 sealed switches, for example:

Sealed Switches - CW Industries | DigiKey
IP67 Sealed Toggle Switch Series - Electroswitch | DigiKey

Replacements should have no lesser current rating than originals..

Re: What switch?

Probably get a whole new waterproof panel, with switches, fuses AND, most important of all, a nice little packet of labels to accurately describe what you are switching, for less than the cost of a few new switches.


That seems to be the way things work now.
