Microlog AC panel for simple shorepower solution

I want to a run my 60 watt minifrig and 6amp Marinco charger so need to hook up to the pedestal (told myself I'd never do that). So for a simple panel, instead of BlueSea'ing or Seadogging it, I thought this looked cool. Any horror stories? https://www.sailorssolutions.com/?pa...ils&Item=ACP01

Why not go with Blue Sea?
Blue Sea 1214 120v Ac Main + 2 Positions $173.88
You'll know you're getting a quality panel.

I like Blue Sea but it doesn't have the double ganged breaker and seems to also lack a neutral bus bar.

I’m not sure what your issues are. I have made my own custom panels over the years. I use Front Panel Express to create A powder coated aluminum plate with all the correct holes and labels. Then I add the breakers and wiring. This way the panel fits the boat instead of trying to get my boat to fit the panel.

Good points. And thank you for making me aware of the Sailor's Solutions store. A very interesting vendor.

It's the type of store where you discover things you didn't know existed but that you MUST have. Rutheless bastards they are!

I've made my own drilling all the holes and printing the labels. Next time I'll try your suggestion. Drilling the holes is a PITA.
