Check the table below to determine your fuse sizes correctly..

Very cool ! That's a nice and clean installation you've done. Two questions though:
1. Don't you have to put the batteries in some dedicated plastic box ? (I just checked the french regulation and this obligation actually disappeared in 2015. Good for me :-)
2. I like your white painting. Did you reinforce the link between floor and walls before painting ? it seems you have more fiberglass than I do. And there might be a good reason for that ! see attached picture ... my boat is 2006.

hi. thanks i like to seal each area as i rebuild them.
1.I do not install agm batterries in boxes as you can stab them and nothing will leak out and i like to ventilate them to prevent overheating while charging...
2.yes my bulk-heads and floors were detached and cracked like yours due to poor building technique .So I ground a 5"margin on all seams and re -filleted with epoxy and then 3 layers of biaxial tape.I have repaired this boat in many areas using this technique.
cheers Ron
