Roy M, Having checked out the West Marine
sight as you suggested, I must admit the recommended current
reductions are much larger than I expected. I'm sure there is some
overkill for safety
consideration, but I fully intend to follow the recommendations.
GordMay, The rule
of thumb will help in my preliminary estimates. And, the article "Ohm's Law & Boats"
has added even more dimension to my simple
. Fortunately, this "redesign" is one of the issues I plan to address during the winter.
Also, I really appreciate the input I have received on this thread.
