TollyLucia,

I'm currently re-wiring the AC side of a '71 Tolly tri-cabin. I started with what I need the final system to do, studied the books mentioned above then tore out the old stuff.

I knew I wanted to use Blue Sea Systems https://www.bluesea.com/. There are other good systems but Blue Sea is good quality and in common use in my area. Their catalog can be downloaded and is a great resource.

When I have my "perfect" system design roughed out I will have an experienced marine electrician look over my boat and plan. I'll then pull the new wires, mount the new hardware, label everything where it goes and bring the electrician back in for a final approval before I hook it all up.

DC is another time, it's a complete disaster and will need much more thought and effort.
