When I built my Roberts 36 in the early 80's, i used untinned wire...didnt actually know any better. my brother in law was an electrician and did most of the wiring
, and he put most of it in conduits with proper junction boxes, so maybe that's why it remained fine after 16 years in the tropics. I sold
in 2001, she is on the market again by the guy I sold
it to. As far as I know the wiring
has not been redone.....I did however use correct bronze
seacocks, and bonded them all to earth. No problem with them either.....although it did kill me to drill holes in a perfectly water
, so it was one of the very last jobs I did.
I am hoping to purchase
a cat in the next 12-18 months, so I would definitely want bronze
, or resin type sea cocks....not so sure about tinned or untinned wire being a show stopper.
its been a mostly interesting discussion so far......
