AC and DC ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS ON BOATS

AC and DC ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS ON BOATS
ABCY* E-11 (61 pages, effective July 31, 2004)
* American Boat & Yacht Council

These standards are guides for the design, construction, and installation of direct current (DC), and of alternating current (AC) electrical systems on boats.
I recommend that anyone contemplating any electrical work on their boat, immediately download & print these invaluable standards, while the link remains active.

Apparently, there are some builders that need to read the same.
