Dave I have found your comments really helpful, Ex-Calif, Ike and other I also have found your advice very well worth it. I realise many different opinions will exist and I think its great that this place allows thoughts from both camps to chime in (how else do better solutions arise than through this type of discussion).
I feel very confident now that I can create the required diagram that will be electrically correct. I am also looking forward to the fact that I will know EVERY area of my boats wiring
plus because I am doing the install I can be as fussy as I like and take as long as I need to in order to make it a very tidy, functional and ascetically pleasing install.
Someone raised the fact the wind
genny wont provide enough power to fully charge 100% of the time. I have taken this on-board and will introduce some solar
into the mix. My long term view is to double the battery bank capacity and I will size my solar
with this in mind.
Thanks for all of the contributions, its been a real pleasure seeing so much knowledge and generosity on display.
