Sad to say as someone that does this for a living, your "before" pictures still look better than our Krogen. I'm going to use the excuse that we've only owned the boat a few weeks, and I'll start working on a different excuse to use next year.

That’s because I brought in a professional to do the work. I could have done some of this but he works much faster than me so.

I wouldn’t have considered working on the Shore power or Isolation Transformer. Too much at risk.

I was looking at the pictures and thinking, "Wow! That really looks tidy!" Then it occurred to me, isn't it a kind of a sad commentary on most boat electrical systems that we don't consider that to be the norm? A rat's nest of wires going every which way is so common that we sort of expect that, and are surprised when someone does a proper job of organizing, bundling, and labeling the electrical system.


Oh well, that aside, congrats on a well-done job.
