NICE SIMPLE easy SCHEMATIC.

I am going to be intsalling a 12v system in a 28 columbia, from scratch. I am only going to have a house bank, (since it has an outboard in an outboard well). I would like around 180-250 amp hrs. I have ordered some electrical books but am curious if someone know where I could get a sample of a simple schematic showing the basic terminal boards and details of the system. It will be primarily for weekend cruises and the occasional 5-7 day exc. A few things on the boat

-running lights (legal stuff)
-2 or 3 interior lights, 20w lights
-led courtesy light (step and over counter)
-laptop charger (inverter)
-VHF, Radio,
-NORCOLD refridge, 3amps
-O ,and I would need some sort of solar to charge (b/c of outboard), any inputs or links would be greatly appreciated.

Mahalo.

You can start by going through this thread.

Starting from Scratch

A lot of good info came my way when I was first designing my electrical system for a 30' trawler. I have to go find the diagrams and will post those later.
