Would this Way be OK to Wire a Boat?

Hi All.

My boat is nearly ready for a re wire and was thinking of running 12v led lights or strips 5 max, nav lights fish finder and a cig charging port for the laptop .

The thought was I could use this when sailing and while in port have a shore connection going to a plug socket up front and aft plus a main light in the boat but mainly into a optimate charger on the battery so it would save having 2 sets of lights throughout the boat. Does this sound plausible?

Thanks tilly

Re: Would this way be ok to wire a boat

Yes, more or less.
The AC wiring is a little vmore complicated than you indicate.
