Arima upgrades -- switch panel
« on: February 28, 2012, 09:45:46 PM »
I have been putting off posting pics of my Star Board install, hoping for a day when it would stop raining in Portland and I could clean up the boat.  It appears that may be sometime in June, so I decided to post some pictures tonight.

First upgrade, I got rid of my old toggle switches and replaced with a new waterproof Blue Sea panel.  I cut out the hole for the switch with a cutting bit on a Dremel.  Worked great.

Here's the new panel with the cover off, showing the fuses:

Finished product, with the white cover.  Switches are red-ish orange when turned off, go green when turned on.  Has a built in set up for running lights and the anchor light, note with running lights on the anchor is lit up.  



You can also see where I sealed my old cup holder on that side with Marine Tex.  At some point I will go back and cover it (and that scratch) with gel coat.

Nice work.  I have the old switches so this may be in my future.

Love what you did to the cup holder too.  Always questioned the logic of that cup holder that drains into the electrical...

Very nice! I had that switch panel in the 8 switch version on my 17 SR and really liked it. So much so I bought the 8 switch one, the 4 switch one and the 2 switch one for the new 19 SC  :biggrin:
