1 concern; electrical panels
need to be easy to open in case off malfunction
and need to be in a dry location, think about in this scenario, you are sailing in rough to heavy conditions and the cockpit
is wet and miserable, the autopilot
breaker is not working anymore and you need to open the panel to find whats goin on! maybe is a good idea to have in the cockpit some swichtes , but the breakers and main panel is better to keep it inside , just my opinion , i have in my cockpit a swicht for the spreaders lights and compass
and cockpit light.
The idea is not so bad, just wonder to me how to fix a malfunction
swicht in nasty conditions.
